There are a number of social media options to help engage customers and to tell them about your farm, but farmers don\'t have time to use them all. Being online takes time and resources and farmers need to strategize how to make the best use of their online activities. This workshop will help farmers develop an understanding of the best opportunities for social media use. Participants will leave with a basic outline of a social media strategy they can use to tell their story to the public. Presentation led by Chris Bodnar, an organic farmer in Abbotsford. He and his wife, Paige, own and operate Close to Home Organics. Chris holds a PhD in Communication from Carleton University. Before farming, he worked on communication planning for government, arts and advocacy clients. He currently teaches the Business of Agriculture course in KPU\'s Sustainable Agriculture program.

This workshop will help farmers develop an understanding of the best opportunities for social media use. Participants will leave with a basic outline of a social media strategy they can use to tell their story to the public. Presentation led by Chris Bodnar, an organic farmer in Abbotsford. He and his wife, Paige, own and operate Close to Home Organics. Chris holds a PhD in Communication from Carleton University.

1142 Free online documentary: Island Green! Canada **Until Sept 21st**National Film Board presents "ISLAND GREEN" directed by Millefiore Clarkes. This short documentary takes a look at the changing face of PEI\'s agricultural industry. Once famous for its spuds and red mud, this tiny island province now has higher than average cancer and respiratory illness rates. Is there a link to industrialized farming? Rather than dwelling on PEI’s worrisome monocropping practices, Island Green dares to ask: What if PEI went entirely organic? The stirring words of PEI-born poet Tanya Davis are coupled with beautiful imagery and poignant stories from the island’s small but growing community of organic farmers, reminding us that we can rob the land only so much before it robs us of the nourishment we need for life. Island Green is ultimately a story of hope and healthy promise.It is available to view online for free (until Sept 21) and can also be downloaded.

1073 CBC Doc Zone presents: The New Green Giants canada Saturday, September 20, 2014 at 2 PM on CBC-TV**The last ten years has seen an explosion in the organic food movement as it has moved from niche market to main stream. Today, it is the fastest growing segment of the food industry attracting all of the major food corporations. The New Green Giants looks at a number of these new and old organic corporations and shows how they are managing or in some cases failing to live up to the idealistic dreams first espoused by the back-to-the land folk of the late sixties and early seventies. What does organic actually mean? Are organic foods really pesticide free? Why should parents of small children care about pesticides? Are organic fruits and vegetables nutritionally healthier? How can a consumer know that they are really buying organic food? Is there any difference between products labeled organic versus natural? What happens when a mom-and-pop organic food operation turns into a huge corporation? What is the one problem that all successful organic operations inevitably face? Is it realistic to think the world can be fed organically? The New Green Giants exposes the complex and controversial world of today\'s organic food industry.The New Green Giants was directed by Ted Remerowski for Tremer Productions in association with CBC-TV.

1036 The New Science of Farm-Fresh, Unprocessed Milk: Does It Still Constitute a Health Hazard?” UVic Human and Social Development Building Wednesday, Sept. 10th, 2014 7pm-8:30pm. Doors open at 6:30pm at UVic Human and Social Development Building, Room HSD A240**In 1988, unpasteurized milk was legally deemed to be a health hazard in British Columbia, a clause currently found under the “Public Health Act, Health Hazards Regulation.” Potential penalties for anyone distributing it – farmer or consumer - include fines of up to $3 million dollars or three years in jail, and this policy of prohibition has resulted in a flourishing and expanding “black market.” In comparison, raw milk is legally available from both farms and retail stores in both Washington State and California, from licensed micro-dairies in Oregon, and from vending machines in several European nations. Mark McAfee, spokesperson for the Raw Milk Institute in California, poses an alternative point of view on raw milk legalization, a proposal for legalization in BC, for discussion and debate. The talk will include: Food safety standards Food safety protocols and practices on the farm Testing systems, protocols and results How to simplify raw milk safety to a very reliable and consistent science!! With data to prove it. History of raw milk Nutrition of raw milk Changes that occur in pasteurization and processing Data that flows from US and EU raw milk systems and practices Speaker Biography: Mark McAfee, spokesperson for the Raw Milk Institute (RAWMI) in California, is the founder and CEO of Organic Pastures Dairy in Fresno, California, which is on their 4th generation family farm and distributes raw dairy products in over 600 stores in California. Mark is internationally recognized as an expert in raw milk safety and production, having headed a team which developed and published the first international raw milk production and safety standards. He has spoken at Rutgers and Stanford University Medical Schools and has been an expert witness in legislative and judicial proceedings across America.

779 Organic Week Movie Night at The Big Carrot – Food Beware 348 Danforth Avenue, Toronto, ON Thursday September 25, 2014 7:00pm--For the first time, our children are growing up less healthy than we are. Why? Food Beware begins with a visit to a small village in France, where the town's mayor has decided to make the school lunch menu organic and locally grown. A wide variety of people with differing perspectives to find common ground are interviewed- children, parents, teachers, healthcare workers, farmers, elected officials, scientists, researchers and the victims of illnesses themselves. Revealed in these moving and often surprising conversations are the abuses of the food industry, the competing interests of agrobusiness and public health, the challenges and rewards of safe food production and the practical solutions that we can all take part in.***The movie will be screened in Carrot Common Room 212. It is stair access only, the entrance is beside Book City on the Danforth.

As its name implies, National Organic Week is celebrated across the country. Gardeners, farmers, retailers and advocates of organic and ecological food production are hosting various events between September 21st - 28th to bring awareness to the burgeoning national organic movement. “Increasingly we are seeing the value of responsible organic food production in Canada” continues Temple. “Organic farming has been shown to conserve soil, water and energy, as well as provide humane conditions for livestock. On a small scale with our garden, we’re happy to show how well you can grow food using only organic methods, such as seaweed and compost”. The Blow Me Down Community Garden is a 35 plot garden and greenhouse that was established in 2010 by the Western Environment Centre. It is located just off Lundrigan Drive, on the road towards the cross country ski club.

On Wednesday, September 25th, 2013 we will be having one of our 15% off sale days. This sale will be on your whole bill including sale products and on top of the 5% a person would get for buying bulk items. As we move into fall we clean off our garden, share surplus food with friends, family and co-workers, and preserve what we can (fermentation, pickling, dehydration, freezing, canning, etc). It is a time of harvesting, of putting up food for the winter months, and Earth’s General Store is part of this ritual for many families since we are a source for dehydrators, fermentation crocks, organic spices, salts, and our ever popular large bags of rolled oats. Sale prices are only applicable for items bought and picked up on Wednesday – no holds and no rain checks/prepayments (you cannot pay for an item at the sale price that we don’t have in stock). It does not apply to items on hold or for our business to business sales. As part of our Organic Week celebration we are having a Fall Fermentation Workshop ($25 fee). Fall also sees us hosting our excellent value for money workshops and documentary series. Please note that this year we will be holding these workshops and documentary screenings at the King Edward Community League (Small Hall) at the corner of 80 avenue and 81 street. The workshops will cover fermentation, dehydration, eating, raw food diet, kombucha making and I am working on some other workshops. The documentary series covers everything from bees to fracking.
