We’re halfway through BC Farmers Appreciation Week. So. What have you done to show a farmer you care?


Why not write a poem?

For the fourth year in a row, for Farmers Appreciation Week, the BC Farmers Market Association invites British Columbians to show their appreciation for BC farmers and agriculture through words. Whether it’s a sonnet, limerick or haiku, get your creative juices flowing and send in your farm-themed poem. You could win glory, fame, AND a gift certificate to your local farmers’ market.

Details here. Enter by Sunday, September 18, midnight!

Of course, you could always just buy some local produce. It’s as poetic a way to say thanks, as any.
