Upcoming Local Food Workshops

Guelph-Wellington Locavores, there are 4 interesting and inexpensive workshops coming up that you might be interested in. Hosted by Kristi Mahy, they will be held at the Guelph Youth Music Centre, which is located at 75 Cardigan St. in downtown Guelph. Kristi is a local food enthusiast with a background in farming. If you would like more information about the course (other than what I am going to provide below), or you would like to register for a workshop, please contact Kristi at 519-265-8448. She can also be reached by email at
The cost of each session varies but when I contacted Kristi, she said that the prices will range anywhere from $7-15. Personally, I'm excited about the fact that I can attend and afford all four. Hope to see you there!
