This Saturday, October 16, Rural Routes has planned a day of exciting local food activities to mark the World Food Organization’s annual World Food Day (this year’s annual theme is “United Against Hunger”). The event starts at the Bread & Roses Cafe/Sky Dragon Centre with an Organic Fair Trade Coffee Roasting Demonstration at 10 am, before being taken away on a bus at 11 am, from outside Sky Dragon Center (location here). The first stop on the bus will be the Plan B Organic Farm, where “Eat Local” columnist for the Hamilton Spectator Katrina Simmons will give a presentation. This will be followed by a couple activities around the farm. After Plan B, the route will continue to Lindley’s Farm and Market. Here you will get and opportunity to visit the corn maze for free, or just walk around participating in other activities (some might have additional costs) and do some shopping at the store. The bus will return to the Bread & Roses Cafe around 4pm. The trip will include a light lunch.
Tickets can be purchased at the Bread & Roses Café for $10 each, or $8 for seniors and $5 for children (Cash Only). The bus will be going in rain or shine, so dress appropriately and remember to bring your own shopping bag (s).
