Manitoba is hosting its first “Open Farm Day” on Sept 19, 2010, and we are looking for farms to participate. Participation is pretty easy and we’re hoping for locations across the province. The idea is to get visitors out to your farm and make that Urban / Rural connection.
Open Farm Day is an opportunity to connect consumers with producers. This is your chance as a food producer, provider of a tourism experience or someone who is interested in promoting agriculture, to show off what you do.
This is a first for MB but other provinces have been hosting Open Farm Day for several years. If you need some help with ideas, or what’s involved. You can check out what they’ve done here, http://www.gov.ns.ca/agri/agaware/openfarmday.shtml and here http://www.gov.pe.ca/af/openfarmday/index.php3?lang=E
