Food for Thought - Panel Discussion

October is a month in which food is prominent in our minds and for our taste buds! 

Thanksgiving and Halloween bring to mind fresh pumpkins for pies and carving and succulent turkeys.  
And on that point, the Museum would like to remind you that this is the last month for the exhibit Roots of the Peace: a bountiful harvest. To conclude this successful exhibit on the heritage of producing food on a quarter section of land, we are hosting a panel of insightful, contemporary ‘food gatherers and producers’ to talk about food security and our connection to the food we eat today.
This will be a PechaKucha style of presenting insightful responses to the topic (five minutes for each presenter) and will conclude with a full discussion between audience and presenters.

A big thank you to the following local panelists who will bring thought and knowledge to the topic of sourcing local food:
               Landscaping with edible plants by Nancy Blayone
               Medicinal plants by Vic and Louise Ploc
               Food co-operatives by Annette Rosendal of Peacefull pantry
               Shares in organic gardening by Lisa Lundgard of The Veggie Patch
               Hunting and wild meat harvesting by Verne MacRoberts
               Our local Food Bank by Lieutenant Kevin Elsasser

This is a free event but donations to the Food Bank will be welcome.

On October 19th, come by the Museum for coffee and an engaging conversation at 10:30 am about food in the Peace!
