Come celebrate World Soil Day, December 5th! We’ll be watching the documentary Living Soils from the Soil Health Institute, followed by a Q&A session with a panel of soil health champions who balance soil health and farm profitability. Local treats and refreshments will be served!

The workshop is on Developing a HACCP plan (Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points).
The workshop is from 9-4 with registration at 8:30 at the Health Unit location. The cost is $25.
