Highlights from #CanolaConnect Harvest Camp 2019

For the 8th year in a row, we invited a group of curious Canadians to Western Manitoba to connect with farmers. Educators, food communicators, scientists and chefs were among this year’s group of urban-based campers. Having open dialogue about food and farming is what camp is all about!

Here are a few highlights from camp via our social media feed! Check out #CanolaConnect on Instagram and visit @CanolaEatWell and see our Camp Highlights Instastories!

#CanolaConnect Harvest Camp // When we connect, we create conversation. Bringing together farmers and Canadians who cook food, who educate others about food and ultimately, like all of us, eat food is one small connection that we hope is the beginning of a greater conversation and journey to learn more about our food system. That’s what our Harvest Camp is about. . We learned together, we shared stories, we made connections and we ate together. From the @canolaeatwell team to our campers, thank you for taking time out of your regular lives to come out to the farm to connect. We are truly grateful that you said yes! Farm leader, @patorsak ‘s message to our campers, “We are not unique. Farmers across the country are just like us and we’re all working to do our very best every day to be sustainable for future generations to grow safe, nutritious and affordable food. Continue to be curious and ask questions.“ #askafarmer . . @camicooks @edenthefoodie @jasminebakerlife @chefhorne @ninjachef @philip.walker.1 @mapleandmarigold @mrfifehomeec

A big thank you to our farm families for stopping harvest to open your doors and your farm yards. To our campers, thank you for saying “yes” and showing up with open hearts and open minds and taking time out of your regular lives to come out to the farm. We are grateful to our entire #CanolaConnect community for carrying on the farm to food conversations that need to be had.
