Wild Foraging for Fall Foods and Medicines:
"Woodstock is a small town with big city problems," says Steve Giuliano, a self-described "community chaplain." Nestled in southern Ontario's Oxford County, the town of 38,000 has more than its share of problems. Substance abuse and unemployment throttle development.
Operation Sharing, a charity run by local churches, is discovering new ways of helping the less fortunate. Giuliano, Operation Sharing's director, has found success in eschewing traditional forms of humanitarianism for more innovative programs.
This summer, the Chinatown Night Market is bringing a heady mix of time-honoured tradition and new school flavour to the festivities on Keefer Street.
Tens of thousands of activists are uniting in a global day of action to "take back the food supply," in a worldwide March Against Monsanto Saturday.
News of the event has gone viral as environmentalists and others opposed to the rampant spread of genetically modified (GM) crops have planned over 400 events in more than 45 countries. In the United States, actions in 47 states are slated to occur simultaneously.
"Our website is averaging over 40,000 visitors a day and our Facebook page has reached over 10,000,000 people in the last 7 days," the organizers wrote on their website Tuesday.

The topic of Food Forestry is a timely and important one. In 2010 the UN released a report detailing how perennial polycultures are one of the only regenerative sustainable solutions to feeding humanity. Food Forests produce more over time and take less effort to maintain (hello lazy gardener!).
We're offering a little appetizer, a tasty treat and every penny of the event is going to Victoria's own Food Forest - Spring Ridge Commons and the budding Vancouver Island Permaculture Community Group. Yup, it's a FUN-drasier.
