Speed dating for farmers

I learned from this tweet from the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs, that the London Economic Development Commission is hosting this event:

LOCAL FOODS FARMER/FOOD BUYER SPEED NETWORKING EVENT
"Connecting Farmers and Food Buyers to tap into the Buy Local food market place"
March 31, 2009, Western Fair

We desperately need to make better connections between Windsor and Essex County and an event like this could do wonders towards starting up relationships between our tourism and agriculture industries. Too bad our own Windsor Economic Development Corporation have other things on their mind...

I was just talking to Rino and Victoria at last night's Bloggers Meet at how an event like this was needed in this area to network local sources and restaurants in the area.

Definitely doable and I have some free time on my hands. Also have connections to a lot of vendors through all of my buying habits.
