What does 2016 hold for OFRE?

As we come out of hibernation we are gearing up for 2016 and have some
amazing ideas for events that will build on our momentum from last
year and we need your help to make it happen! 

To make our organization resilient to and sustainable over the long term we are
seeking volunteers to help our board members implement their ideas.
We are also seeking additional board members to guide the organization
into the future.  Come join us at our AGM and find the hidden fruit in our city!

OFRE presenting at Beer & Berkshire, May 26th, Yellowhead Brewery

Slow Food Edmonton is putting on a fundraiser dinner tonight called Berkshire & Beer for the Slow Food International Project called: 10000 Gardens in Africa. It’s an amazing and inspiring project envisioned by Slow Food Africa out of the Africans for Africa movement. Be sure to check out the websites for more information. I could write a whole book about how awesome this initiative is!

Part of the evening will include short petcha kucha style talks/presentations by a handful of interesting folks doing interesting things in and around Edmonton. Mike Johnson will be talking shop on OFRE and what we will be up to this season with our community fruit orchard and I will be giving a talk on Terra Madre: What it meant to go, why you should go if you can, and what I’ve gained from the experience.

Hope to see you there! It promises to be an interesting night filled with delicious food, beer and people. Need I say more? Oh yes, check out the menu of what delicious foods you will  be eating tonight if you can make it! Many local producers are on the list! Bacon Whisky ice cream interest anyone?!
