Celebrating Organic Food
GreenHeroes recently got a taste of the wonderful work of the Organic Council of Ontario (OCO), one of our partners, at the organization’s recent Organic Dinner and Jazz night.
The event celebrated the sustainability and deliciousness of organic food with a four course, fully organic meal with organic beer and organic wine. But it wasn’t all about eating.
The keynote speaker of the event was Dr. Ralph Martin, professor and Loblaw Chair of the Sustainable Food Production program at the University of Guelph, who tackled misperceptions that organic is unsustainable in his speech to the guests.
During the dinner OCO gave the guests a preview of some videos it has co-developed to introduce organic farming and raise awareness about why it is good for the environment, the economy and for health. Here is one of them!
The event raised nearly $5000 for the Organic Council of Ontario. Thank you, OCO, for a great night.
OCO is looking for nominations for the 2012 Organic Awards!
