Free Fun day for Families in the Country

Celebrate World Food Day
With a day in the country

Transition Cornwall+ Food Action Group is celebrating World Food Day at the South Stormont homestead of Bill and Karen Carriere, Sunday, October 14, 11 am – 3 pm. The free day is packed with activities for the whole family in this beautiful setting, focusing on sustainable food production, both locally and globally. People can take guided and self-guided tours of the property’s fruit and nut groves, winter greenhouses, young food forest as well as enjoy woodland ‘mirror’ walks. There will be demo stations on different methods of food preservation and cider pressing, hands-on harvesting of root vegetables, children’s nature and food activities, and much more. A highlight will be an illustrated talk by a specialist on world food issues from USC Canada along with displays of projects worldwide. There will also be refreshments using local ingredients (a fundraiser for the USC Canada). For a complete program, map directions to address (14932 Otto Rd) and other information check
