We aim to practice radical hospitality and inclusion, responding in creative ways to things that matter in our community.

We believe in the power of creative expression to foster resilience in all of us.

It’s harvest season! Now, more than ever is a great time to support local farmers!

This has been a tough season for farmers in our area, between a global pandemic and extreme drought, they have been working harder than ever to produce amazing local food for our communities. And, now more than ever, they could use your support!

Are you wondering where you can purchase wonderful local meats, vegetables, dairy products and other farm fresh products and support local farmers? Well, Local Food Ptbo has launched a new website that can help you do just that! Check out www.localfoodptbo.ca to find information about local farmers markets, CSA’s and farm stands and follow us @localfoodptbo for daily updates from producers themselves on where to buy their products. Use #localfoodptbo and we will share related updates for you.

Did you know that if each community member spent $5/ week on local food it would inject $55 million into our economy? Support a local farmer, and you will help support their families and our entire community, and you will get the freshest foods our region has to offer. So, since it is harvest season, for vegetables and fruit, why not stock up, enjoy the seasonal bounty and do some canning and preserving to help the local flavour stay in your pantry all winter long!
