This year marks the tenth anniversary of Foods of the Fundy Valley! We incorporated in December 2010 as a result of ABCD workshops (brainstorming solutions to the challenges facing our rural communities). Foods of the Fundy Valley’s mission is to foster an environment that promotes the production and consumption of local foods and local goods in the Albert County area.
Education is a key component of our mandate. We host hands-on workshops on diverse topics such as planting garlic, hydroponics, building a cob oven, beekeeping, seed security, gardening techniques and preserving.
We’ve held several memorable fundraisers over the years – Oktoberfest, pig roasts, cob oven pizza at the Albert County Museum, soup and chili bars at various events. More recently, we hosted the dinner and market at the 2019 Alma Fleet Launch and served breakfast at the Eating Heritage NB food tourism symposium – all featured food prepared from locally grown and raised ingredients by our talented volunteer chefs.
Our vision is a stronger Albert County where we can enjoy local foods and our farmers can sustainably grow the local food economy. We are gratified to see the positively changing attitudes, over the past ten years, toward healthy and local foods in our community. Stay tuned – we hope to see you over the next ten years!
