I had the privilege of attending the Beyond the Supermarket event this past Sunday (March 20th), which was organized by Slow Food Edmonton. It was run as a world cafe with different vendors taking spots at tables and interested parties could pull up a chair to ask you about your group or organization.
I went as a representative for OFRE in hopes of spreading the word about what we do and to capture more interest among volunteer pickers. I felt it was big success! I had lots of opportunities to engage with potential volunteers and left the event with a big list of people who are interested in joining us as pickers this year. Yay!
