Hey kind krafters,
I recently started a student summer intern position in Wolfville where I am constantly learning about food production within Canada/Nova Scotia and ways that I can do better when purchasing food, creating food waste, and producing food. I thought I might share a few of my new findings with any of you reading this today in hopes that all of us can try to be a little bit better ☺
So first off, I thought I’d share a few facts that I’ve learnt about food waste in Canada

Another thing to think about when purchasing food is where does it come from? I have spoken to so many people recently both producers and consumers who have said that they are trying hard to only purchase food from within Nova Scotia. I’ve known some people who try to purchase from just within the Valley region too! I think this is a totally awesome idea and it forces you to support local and eat seasonally too! When you eat seasonally you have an awesome variety of food all year round! Not only does it taste great, it’s also so much more environmentally friendly!

Thanks for reading kind krafters! Please leave any of your suggestions for helping to decrease food waste in the comments – I’d love to learn more.
Lots of love,
