The Northern Healthy Food Initiative took over the boardroom at the Westwood Inn last weekend (Sept. 7 and 8) as participants learned all about seed saving, wintering the garden, and economic development for beekeeping in the northern communities. The Swan River Valley Agricultural Society volunteers went to work on Saturday morning (Sept. 8) as the old Grand Stand seating was fully removed from the structure. The Minitonas Hall came alive on Saturday (Sept. 8) as the Tent Town Garden Club held their annual Fruit Festival. Flower arrangements, local vendors, and friends and family gathered together to enjoy the event. A Soap Making Workshop entertained and educated on Sunday (Sept. 9) as Heather Blue conducted an activity based event in which participants learned how to create soap, lip balm, and healing salve with beeswax.
