… and we are happy to announce a NEW vendor at the upcoming Local Product Festival in Shigawake on July 14, 2013. Ge, le pied sur la pédale makes ecoresponsible (and really cool and cute) clothes for kids, right here in Gaspesie!
Can’t wait to pick up some outfits for my kids, and in turn contribute to our local economy.
Recent tragedies at clothing sweatshops in third world countries make it clearer than ever why we must support a local clothing industry again. So come on out to the festival, and pick up some kids clothing with a conscience!
Ferme BOS G will be back for another year at the Local Product Festival on Sunday July 14 with an excellent variety of steaks and roasts, sausages and deli meats. Yak meat is extra lean, offering a healthy choice for all the Jack Sprats out there who prefer to take a pass on the fat.
See you in Shigawake at the Festival!
How does your garlic grow?
Ever think about growing garlic? What is the difference between spring garlic and fall garlic? How does the garlic from your garden differ from what you can buy at the grocery store? And once you successfully grow it, how do you preserve it?
Local garlic producer Brigitte Beaudoin will be at the Growing Forward gardening forum at Hopetown Old School on Saturday March 23rd to share her growing tips and tricks for this increasingly popular crop.
