Healthy & Sustainable Soil creates Healthy & Sustainable Communities
September 24 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm$6
Soleil and her partner Lauren operate Soleil’s Farm located in South Melville, PEI. The farm includes 6 acres of vegetables. The duo is committed to growing quality local vegetables using organic, no spray farming methods that enrich the health of the soils. One principle that is continuously supported by Soleil’s Farm is the importance of community and everyone in the food supply-chain, from the farmers to the eaters, chefs, land and community of people who provide their support.
Over the years Soleil has brought innovative ideas to help widen access to local food such as “Plate It”, a wholesale delivery initiative connecting Island restaurants and producers. With her co-operative community sponsored agriculture (CSA), she has connected residents to local seasonal produce and other PEI food.
Soleil and Lauren will share their practical experience as organic producers, marketers and community food advocates. Their philosophy of sustainability is to build healthy thriving soils in order to share the earth’s bounty and build healthy thriving communities.
Soleil was recently named as the 2021 winner of the PEI Women’s Institute “Woman in Agriculture Award”.
