Headwaters Food and Farming Alliance communications plans for 2019 include monthly e-newsletters featuring the foundational pillars of the Headwaters Food Charter . The Charter was developed in 2016 in partnership with WDG Public Health and has been endorsed by most municipalities in Dufferin County and Caledon, plus hundreds of citizens and organizations.
This series is intended to keep you informed about issues and events related to the Headwaters Food Charter's 6 Pillars, 15 Goals and 27 Actions to improve our food system.

What else is on the calendar
Another great, easy and rewarding way to take action for a healthy food system is to support the work of organizations like Headwaters Food and Farming Alliance, through fundraising events like our Headwaters Willing Hearts Winter Harvest Dining Series. Only two more dinners left! Get a table full of friends together and come out for a good cause and some amazing food. See details in our poster below.

On March 18th Drawdown Headwaters and HFFA will host an evening exploring Regenerative Agriculture , one of the top ranking solutions to reduce global warming, according to Project Drawdown. A panel of local area farmers and experts will discuss this topic, followed by a Q&A for those in attendance. Mono Community Centre, 6:30 to 8:30pm.

There will be a social hour open to farmers prior to the Regenerative Agriculture session from 5:30 to 6:30pm.

Please email info@hffa.ca if you would like to attend either the social or the RA session, and have not already RSVPd. Childcare will be available.
