The event will also be the first opportunity for many residents to see the pilot of a newly formed partnership exploring on-site food production. In collaboration with the WCSA and Centre Wellington District High School, the Food School Farm offers the students a unique learning opportunity where alternative farming techniques can be explored, while growing quality produce for the school-run culinary program.
