SVGA Field Day June 25, 2018 was a little different this year. We headed north of Saskatoon along the Local Food Trail.  We saw how Osler area farmers are diversifying and tapping into local markets. Thank you to BarnYard Market, Petter Farms and Pine View Farms for hosting us.  A delicious lunch was served at Pine View Farms by Fresh Dish Catering sourcing local ingredients! Thank you to Gord Enns, Executive Director of the Saskatoon Food Council, for organizing the tours.  Thank you to Chris Buhler of Floating Gardens for your informative lunch time presentation. Many thanks to Dr. Kate Congreves, U of S College of Agriculture & Bioresources, for organizing the research plot tour. The test plots are designed to evaluate the influence of nitrogen fertilizer & cover cropping on soil health and broccoli, carrot, and sweet corn production.  Thank you to Connie Achtymichuk, Provincial Vegetable Specialist, for all your help as well.  Thank you to all who attended- hope to see you next year!
