1242 Presentation: Connecting with your Customers Using Social Media Kwantlan Polytechnic University, Richmond Campus, British Columbia Date: September 24th, 4:00pm - 6:00pm. Location: KPU Richmond Campus, R2630 Organic farmers have an incredible story to tell and customers are hungry for a connection to the farms growing their food. 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.

810 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.

773 The New Science of Farm-Fresh, Unprocessed Milk: Does It Still Constitute a Health Hazard?” Human & Social Development Bldg University of Victoria Victoria, BC 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. Sponsored by BC Herdshare Association and the University of Victoria. http://bcherdshare.org/mark-mcafee-rawmi-visits-bc-and-ontario/

Our on-site 2.5-acre organic farm provides our restaurant and catering services with over 70 varieties of vegetables, herbs and fruit. Watch out for grazing goats and sheep! Chef Brooke Winters creatively uses the produce grown lovingly in our gardens, to create meals that are a feast for the senses. Artisan breads, sauces, and dressings are created in-house from local, sustainable ingredients. In season, 80 percent of the food that we serve is produced on Salt Spring Island. We serve 100 percent grass-fed, free range beef and free range chicken. Our seafood is Ocean Wise Certified which means that we only use seafood that is ethically fished or harvested. We raise our own lamb; serve our own free range eggs, and also produce our own honey and maple syrup. We offer live dinner music every Saturday and Sunday from 6:30-9:30pm. Our farm sits on a 15-acre remnant of the Crofton family’s original 100-acre farm, directly behind the hotel. In 2004, the hotel began the “farm remediation project” to provide their restaurant and guests with farm-fresh produce in their meals -- just as the Crofton family did from 1916 until the 1950s before selling which is when the farm became a heap of brambles and broom. The benefit of the farm resting for all those years is that the land was never exposed to chemicals used in farming at the time.
