Terra Madre 2012!

We are incredibly excited to have been nominated, and won, the award of Terra Madre 2012 delegate for Northern Alberta! Terra Madre is an annual event by Slow Food, an organization of more than 100,000 members in 150 countries worldwide. It is a time for people from across the globe to convene and share thoughts and knowledge about local, sustainable food production. It is a prestigious honour for us to have been selected and we are extremely proud. This year's Terra Madre is being held in Turin, Italy so Cindy and I are brushing up on our Italian and learning all that we can about the event. We will be part of the Canadian Delegation and will participate in manning the trade show booth as well as attending meetings and conferences. Of course, we will be in there will be some touring and eating as well. A sneak peek at 2012 Terra Madre.

  1. Thanks...we are very fortunate to have won this nomination. We are excitedly looking over Turin web pages and "what to do in Torino"...Can't wait.

  2. It's well deserved! I know you will represent Canadian Heritage grains with knowledge and pride :)

  3. Thanks Deb...I don't know if we will both be able to afford to go, but if we can't swing the costs for both of us, Cindy will go. She deserves it with all she's endured trying to get this business off the ground. It is still a struggle, but we're getting there. Slowly but surely.
