Canada’s National Organic Week is the largest annual celebration of organic food, farming and products across the country.

 

Last year, events included anything from pickling workshops to recipes contests, farm tours, or organic food and drink tastings in retail locations across the country. Every school, retailer, chef, organic grower or advocate is encouraged to get involved.
