Celebrate World Food Day with a day in the country! Transition Cornwall+ Food Action Group is celebrating World Food Day at the South Stormont homestead of Bill and Karen Carriere, Sunday, October 14, 11 AM - 3 PM. This free day is packed with activities for the whole family in a beautiful setting, focusing on sustainable food production both locally and globally.

People can take guided and self-guided tours of the property’s fruit and nut groves, winter greenhouses, and young food forest, as well as enjoy woodland “mirror” walks. There will be demo stations on different methods of food preservation and cider pressing, hands-on harvesting of root vegetables, children’s nature and food activities, and much more. A highlight will be an illustrated talk by a specialist on world food issues from USC Canada, along with displays of projects worldwide. There will also be refreshments, made using local ingredients (a fundraiser for the USC Canada). For a complete programme, a map with directions to address, and other information, check Transition Cornwall +
