Time to stock up!

With a week to go until the next pickup I'm taking stock of what I need to order to get our household through until almost the end of February. 
Is the popcorn jar getting too empty? Do I have enough cooking oil and ghee to pop it with?
I want to apologize as I had the incorrect date for the upcoming Waterloo Region Blue Dot visit in my last email. A Blue Dot representative will be at our February 2nd pickup to chat with you and hopefully get your support in the form of a signature. See more information below.
Be well,

Here are some great local items to enjoy midwinter:

  • Anam Cara Farm has Whole Young Duck available for roasting, making prosciutto or soup.
  • I'm down to one bag of Spud's Finest Kettle Chips and there is a new batch coming from Tim at Barrie's Asparagus (4 months to go for asparagus!)
  • Bowman's Organic has frozen cubed butternut squash and sliced carrots available ready for you!
  • Garden Party has added to their prepared foods! Look for Tangy Slaw - great on sandwiches!
  • Fresh Wheat Grass, Sunflower Shoots and Pea Shoots as well as Dried Horsetail is available from Brenda Knechtel - and she's also started living oregano plants for us.
  • We've restocked Grass Fed Pastured Organic Ground Beef as well as Marrow Bones (for bone broth!) from Vibrant Farms.

Be part of the Waterloo Region Blue Dot movement!

A representative from Waterloo Region Blue Dot movement, which is supported by the David Suzuki Foundation will be at Bailey's on February 2nd collecting signatures for their campaign.
Over 110 nations in the world have a Right To A Healthy Environment and 85% of Canadians think we have this right already, but we do not.
Our team is inspired to establish environmental rights for all citizens of Waterloo Region– i.e. the right to fresh air, clean water, and healthy food. Our Waterloo Region Blue Dot team is a group of dedicated volunteers of community members, ranging from students, new mothers, to the elderly. Over the next 8 months, we aim to canvass, partner with local organizations, build municipal government relations and form media campaigns to reach our target of achieving a municipal declaration in the Region of Waterloo by Earth Day 2015.  We already have over 2,000 petition signatures towards our goal of 5,000 by December 2014, over 200 volunteers, and many community organizations endorsing this movement. We hope that Waterloo Region will be a leader to declare early support for this movement and join many other Canadian municipalities to recognize a right to a healthy environment for our citizens.  You can find more about the national Blue Dot movement here:
