EMC News - Moira - Describing 2010 as "a very, very exciting year," Harvest Hastings Co-ordinator Louise Livingstone outlined a few of the accomplishments realized by members of the organization over the past year during its annual meeting at the Moira Hall last week.

By working together to boost the profile of local agricultural producers, she says, new relationships are forming to create a network of links between the farm and the consumer. Through partnerships with Loyalist College's Culinary School, Gleaners Food Bank and Inn from the Cold, among others, Livingstone explains, more people are learning about the quality and variety of products grown in Hastings County.
