We hosted the CBC morning show on Friday October 28th.  It was a great experience.  We hosted as part of the PEI Young Farmers, Carey is on the executive.  Hon. George Webster, Minister of Agriculture, MLA Carolyn Bertram, Malcolm Stanley and a lot of others were here for the show.  

The CSA pickup room was expanded and converted into an area large enough to host Island Morning.  It was great to have Mitch, Matt, and the crew here. 

I (Carey) was interviewed and got to share our story of how we ended up on PEI, and how we have always had a “love affair” with farming.  Jeff missed the fun filled morning but was enjoying some time at a sustainability conference in Ontario.

There were other members of the YF Executive including President Pat Dunphy, VP Jeremy Stead, and VP of Policy Greg Stavert.  There were interviews done with the Young Farmers to hear their stories.  Feel free to follow the link to here clips from the morning.

 

We enjoyed meeting and hosting the event.  We hope we get the opportunity again.  We weren’t sure what to expect at first but are glad we went through with hosting the show.  It was a morning to remember.  And a great party starting before 6am.
