Today was the best! I hung out in Stony Plain with about 1100 kids from the Edmonton-area to learn all about agriculture and where our food comes from.
Because I grew up around my grandparents’ canola farm, I don’t fall for all of the myths—like, I don’t believe chocolate milk comes from brown cows. (You don’t either, right?) But that doesn’t mean I know everything.
We spent half of the day on a farm, and the other half visiting displays set up by the various commodity groups from around the province.
The Alberta Canola Producers’ Commission even gave away SIGNED copies of Amelia “Xerces” Duffy, the fifth book in the adventure comic book series inspired by…me. <grin>
I talked to quite a few of my “city slicker” friends afterwards, and we all agree—there is SO MUCH to learn about agriculture and food. Pretty exciting stuff. I tried to take pictures—but the whole day was JAM PACKED. Before I knew it, it was time to go home.
Hey! Were you at City Slickers today? Email a picture to firstname.lastname@example.org and you could win a signed Chase Duffy comic. Cool, huh?
