Local farmers and food producers want to supply you with the best of their best. Their challenge is to create a system that brings you what you want to eat in a way that is sustainable and fair to both producers and eaters.
To this end, you are being invited to participate in a survey about your family's likes, needs and patterns in food shopping and cooking. Where do you buy your food? What do you consider in making your choices? How interested are you in prepared foods? The Grey Bruce Centre for Agro-ecology, a farm-based co-operative, will use the community's answers to create an on-line ordering system that will bring local food right to your neighbourhood, maybe even right to your door. Fresh, convenient, packaged to suit your household at competitive prices – that is the goal. From veggies and baking to coffee, pantry staples and prepared meals, the local grocery distribution system can provide a wide variety of food options.
Your answers to the survey linked here will help local producers provide the right mix for our Grey-Bruce eaters. All the submissions will be confidential, but you will have the option to sign up for updates as the distribution project unfolds toward a launch as early as this fall.

Most of us do not face life threatening situations on a daily basis, but we all feel fear. What are you afraid of?

For some of us, there are social situations that make our chest constrict. Standing in front of a crowd to speak makes our legs shake. We have to go to a party alone, will have to mingle with a crowd of strangers, and we break into a cold sweat. We avoid the friend who lost a loved one because we are afraid of saying the wrong thing.

Sometimes we are afraid of failure. We may over prepare, put in hours of extra work to get it right. Or we are so afraid of failing that we do not try. At times, we are afraid the world is failing, that peace is impossible and climate change is bringing inevitable disaster. We are afraid our life is headed for a crash. We are afraid our child is climbing into real trouble.

Whatever we are afraid of, fear shuts us down. We close our eyes so we don't have to see trouble coming. We close our hands so we do not have to touch the task we cannot handle. We put our hands over our ears and close our minds. Fear shuts us away from other people and from ourselves.
