As the saying goes, "You are what you eat." 
Do you want to be smarter about it? 
Then don't miss this delicious event:
On September 10th, 2006 the Ecology Action Centre's Food Action
Committee will be holding their Second Annual September Harvest Festival
in Victoria Park (Spring Garden Rd.) in downtown Halifax. This event
will be free to the public in an effort to promote and celebrate locally
grown food in a festive environment.
The goal of the event is to foster connections between food producers
and those that purchase their products. A variety of farmers and food
enthusiasts will be on hand with an array of delicious foods produced in
Nova Scotia. People will have the opportunity to interact with producers
in an informal and celebratory setting, ask questions, as well as to
sample and purchase available products. This highly anticipated,
festival-style event will include live music, theatre, guest speakers,
games and food sampling. To continue the theme of sustainable living,
there will be presentations of renewable energy sources on site. This
event is sure to whet the appetite of passers-by and leave them better
informed about the value of local food, and their ability to shape
current agriculture practices through their purchasing decisions.
