Upcoming Events - Part of ASFA/CSU Green Week @ Concordia

Finished Product - Yum!

Come learn how to harvest and preserve daikon radish, a companion crop planted in the RealiTEA garden out at our lovely Loyola campus.

We'll meet at 3pm at the RealiTEA garden behind Hingston Hall (walk to the back of the campus, near the smaller soccer field behind the Science Complex, and you'll find the Solar House and the Garden). We'll harvest our daikon radish and then head over to the Hive Cafe to undertake the preparation and pickling of the radishes!

The workshop will run till about 4:30 and everyone will get to take home a jar for eating throughout the year. A PWYC ($5 suggested) donation is requested though no one will be turned away. Money will cover the costs of the workshop (jars, equipment, etc) and anything leftover will go towards the Concordia Food Systems Project.

Space is limited so please RSVP to to reserve your spot!

2) ROUND-TABLE DISCUSSION ON FOOD POLITICS: YOUR OWN AND THE COUNTRY'S - Thursday, October 21st, 2:30-4:30pm, CSU Lounge (Hall Bldg 7th floor)

Presented by students in ANTH 398 (Political Sociology of Food) in Partnership with the People's Food Policy Project and the Concordia Food Systems Project

What we collectively eat - our food culture - has a huge impact on what is farmed, made and sold in our country and around the world. At the same time, government policies, laws, programs and subsidies dictate life for farmers and consumers and shape the business landscape against which food is grown, altered, and eaten. Join us for a discussion about your own food policies and insight into the provincial and national frameworks that impact what ends up on our plates. Facilitated by Cameron Stiff, Co-Coordinator of the Concordia Food Systems Project
