At this very moment UM is holding a welcome feast with vegetarian hotdogs and its first annual Sustainability Fair. Among the many booths surrounding the oval, calling for sorority rushes and anime enthusiasts, are a few centered on environmental issues and action, including the Farm to School Program. I think the University has not only shown interest in making the school more ecoologically sound, but they have acted on their interest.

Can people list other businesses or government offices that are doing this in Missoula and the surrounding area? It might be nice to have a list, maybe a little map even.

A sustainability fair?

I wish I had heard of it a bit earlier.

Me too, actually. There are a lot of events on campus that don't get a lot of publicity in the general community. If I hear of more developments, now that I'm a student, I'll be sure to post it on this forum.

Wholesale Success workshop in Missoula, MT March 6th. Atina Diffley, organic farmer and consultant (Organic Farming Works LLC), public speaker, and author of the 2012 memoir, Turn Here Sweet Corn: Organic Farming Works, will bring her more than 20 years of organic farming experience to Montana.

The workshop covers topics such as: Calculating Return on Investment; Cleaning, Drying, and Curing Produce; Traceability; Packing Shed Design; Maintaining the Cold Chain, and how to use the online food safety tool to create your own farm’s food safety plan.

Wholesale Success will support farmers in meeting the burgeoning demand for locally/regionally grown fruits and vegetables. Participating producers will receive a free copy of Family Farmed.org’s 312 page Wholesale Success Manual, normally an $80 value. The manual includes more than 100 crop profiles with crop-specific information on harvesting, cooling, storing and packing standards.

Cost is 10 bucks. Register here:
