Thank you to everyone who came out to A Fresh Event! Our wonderful sponsors and volunteers made for smooth sailing as we hosted over 200 people at the Ridge Theatre. We recieved ample praise for the tasty food and drinks as well as our organization partners who had lots to share on sustainable food systems. With raffle prizes from Choices Market, FarmFolkCityFolk, Seeds of Plenty, Ethical Bean & Edible British Columbia in addition to our artisan gift bags… who could ask for more?

Of course there was more, there was the film FRESH and it was fabulous. As I farewelled our guests at the door numerous individuals shared that the film positively influenced them and the way they think about food. Heck, I was inspired from all the inspiration floating around the theatre. So again thank you to each one of you who came last Thursday and  most importantly The World in a Garden sends an overwhelming thank you to our event partner, FarmFolkCityFolk.
Ms. Magee, you are a charm and you know how to make things happen :) and Nicholas Scapillati, the new Executive Director at FFCF, it’s great to have you on board!
