UPDATE: Green Living takes a silver at Pearl Awards.//
Last spring the Green Living Show partnered with the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs to support its efforts in promoting local food and was awarded a grant from the Ontario Market Investment Fund. To build on the Farm Fresh Fare program mandate of connecting people with local food Green Living produced a take-away booklet for show-goers. The digest sized booklet included the why, how and where of keeping your food local plus local chef’s recipes that use 70% local ingredients. The Green Living team had a fabulous time creating the booklet—it came from the heart of all of those involved—and now it is being honoured with a Pearl award in NYC next month. YAY! I'll post more details after the ceremony on November 7. Check out the 2011 FFF Guide here and visit the Show in the spring of 2012 for a whole new selection of recipes from local chefs.
