Event: Wendy Holm, Guest Speaker, Wednesday Jan 9

The Pemberton Farmer’s Institute presents Wendy Holm, agricultural economist, feisty foe of the rampant industrialization of farming, free-enterprise champion and Cuban revolutionary, as their guest speaker, on Wednesday Jan 9th at 7pm at St. Davids United Church.

It is the start, potentially, of a Speakers Series, from the Pemberton Farmer’s Institute, a group hell-bent on sowing the seeds of good food and revolution in our neighbourhood.

Admission is free for 2012 PFI members , $5 for non-members.
