Cornwall, Ontario – The free day is packed with activities for the whole family in this beautiful setting, focusing on sustainable food production, both locally and globally. People can take guided and self-guided tours of the property’s fruit and nut groves, winter greenhouse, young food forest as well as enjoy woodland ‘mirror’ walks.  There will be demo stations on different methods of food preservation, and hands-on harvesting of root vegetables, seed saving and children’s nature and food activities, along with music and refreshments using local ingredients.  A highlight will be an illustrated talk by Elodie Mantha, a specialist on world food issues from USC Canada, along with displays of projects worldwide. Donations are welcome as a fundraiser for USC Canada. Activities will be held rain or shine, with some under cover.
