Word just in from Michael Schmidt that he was out standing in Alice Jongerden’s yard in Chilliwack B.C. last night with Gordon Watson. He says he will be at the rally and court hearing this morning in Vancouver, in support of Home on the Range cowsharers.
Yesterday Michael led a group of farmers in a meeting towards the first beginnings of a raw milk producers organization, at the Guelph Organic Conference. Michael says that from that preliminary meeting, an executive committee was formed to take things further. Plans are underway for a training course in raw milk production to take place over several weekends this coming spring.
Tuesday Michael will be back in Toronto as one of four food-tasting judges at a competition at Toronto restaurant CAVA to see which chef can make the most appealing dish based on ground hog meat — that’ll be in honour of groundhog day, no doubt.
