Canadian Organic Growers (COG) is a national volunteer, not-for-
profit organization with members in all regions of Canada. COG’s
membership is diverse and includes farmers, gardeners, processors,
retailers and consumers.
COG’s objectives include:
• Fostering a decentralized, bioregionally-based food system which
  cuts transportation costs, bolsters local marketing systems and
  economics and promotes greater regional food self-reliance;
• Promoting practices that promote and maintain long term soil
  fertility, reduce fossil fuel uses, reduce pollution, recycle waste
  and conserve non-renewable resources; and
• Assisting farmers, gardeners, food processors and consumers,
  through education and demonstration, to better understand
  the value and integrity of organic foods and farming systems.

COG activities include:
• The quarterly magazine The Canadian Organic Grower
• Educational materials including books, fact sheets, kits and videos
  produced for growers, consumers, teachers and anyone interested
  in ecological food production
• Training, workshops, conferences, farm and garden tours, dem-
  onstration gardens, farmers’ markets organized by local COG
  chapters
• The Mary Perlmutter Scholarship awarded each year to a graduate
  student undertaking research related to organic agriculture.
• The COG lending library, a unique free mail service of organic read-
  ing materials based in Ottawa
• Co-operation with other organizations and government to achieve
  regulatory change, such as the Consumer and Corporate Affairs
  “Definition of Organic Food” and the Agriculture Canada “National
  Standards for Organic Food Production.”
Canadian Organic Growers is comprised of fifteen local Chapters
across Canada.
                            Ottawa Chapter

Canadian Organic Growers (COG) is Canada’s national membership-based educa-
tion and networking organization representing farmers, gardeners, consumers
and supporters in all provinces and territories. The Ottawa Chapter of COG is the
largest of its 15 chapters, with members throughout Eastern Ontario and Western
Quebec. As a member of COG-Ottawa you support our work promoting a local
organic food supply, for the benefit of farmers and consumers. You will also have
opportunities to learn about organic food production and meet local farmers.
Among other activities we organize farm tours, present our annual Eco Farm day in
February for farmers, publish a quarterly newsletter and have a regularly updated
online Organic Food Directory, and organize spring gardening courses. We also
coordinate the “Growing Up Organic” project in the Ottawa region, with the objec-
tive of increasing access to organic food for young children. Last but not least, we
are the proud parents of Feast of Fields!
There are many opportunities to be involved with COG at whatever level suits your
lifestyle and interests. Please visit us at the COG booth to learn more about the
benefits of COG membership.


Join us again for our next public event, Fall Reflections, where we review the past
                           year and make plans for 2010.

                          On behalf of my colleagues on Ottawa City
                          Council, representing 898,000 residents, it is
                          my distinct pleasure to extend a very warm
                          welcome to all those in attendance of Feast
                          of Fields 2009, hosted by the Ottawa Chapter
                          of the Canadian Organic Growers, and taking
                          place at Vincent Massey Park in the heart of
                          our nation’s capital.

 As Head of Council, I want to lend my fullest moral support to the
 Ottawa members of the Canadian Organic Growers and their community
 partners for their efforts to promote organic agriculture, as well as for
 providing a forum for farmers, market gardeners, consumers, educators
 and policy-makers to network for the advancement of a sustainable
 bioregionally-based organic food system, which also serves to protect
 the environment.

 Allow me to congratulate the Canadian Organic Growers in Ottawa,
 along with the contributors, sponsors and volunteers of Feast of Fields
 2009 for the successful presentation of this unique fall harvest event
 highlighting healthy and nutritious cuisine created by celebrated chefs
 from across greater Ottawa.

 Bon appétit!

 Sincerely,




 Larry O’Brien
 Mayor

Premiere Sponsor:




Once again the Ottawa Citizen is delighted to sponsor the Feast of Fields
2009 and the Canadian Organic Growers, whose community shared
agriculture theme this year encourages consumers and farmers to work
cooperatively in their mutual best interest. What a great idea it is to get
to know the dedicated men and women who work so diligently to bring
quality, wholesome food to our tables!

Since its appearance 13 years ago on a rainy day at the Central Experimental
Farm, Feast of Fields has become one of the city’s premiere food events
that teams organic farmers with passionate chefs.

As a long-time supporter, The Citizen applauds the talented people who
are serving you today and the bounty they have to offer. We encourage
you to support local producers, and by all means watch for the Savour
Ottawa logo at markets you frequent for your assurance that the money
you spend supports our local community.

And we invite you to enjoy our coverage of community food, culinary
events and the people who bring it all home in the pages of the Ottawa
Citizen, on our website ottawa.citizen.com, and in the popular food blog
Omnivore’s Ottawa.

Savour the opportunity, and have a delicious afternoon.

Ron Eade,
Ottawa Citizen Food editor

     Canadian Organic Growers – Ottawa Chapter presents

                        Feast of Fields 2009
   • The concept of Feast of Fields was inspired by the pioneering work
     of chefs Michael Stadtlander and Jamie Kennedy in the Toronto
     region in the late 1980s.
   • Feast of Fields events are now held in many locations across Canada
     including Ottawa, Toronto, and Vancouver.
   • The first Feast of Fields Ottawa was held in 1996 at the Central
     Experimental Farm with 16 Farmer/Chef teams and was presented
     by the Women’s Culinary Network.
   • By 2000, the Ottawa Chapter, Canadian Organic Growers was
     responsible for organizing Feast of Fields on an intermittent basis
     at venues in Ottawa and the region.
   • Feast of Fields is the only organic food event of its kind in Ottawa.
   • In 2005 Feast of Fields Ottawa was first held in Vincent Massey Park
     with 16 Farmer/Chef teams participating.
   • In 2007 Feast of Fields expanded to 25 Farmer/Chef teams and
     introduced a formal sponsorship campaign to aid in putting the
     event on firmer financial ground.
   • 2009 represents the fifth consecutive year of Canadian Organic
     Growers Ottawa Feast of Fields and has become a premier regional
     food event:
      –partnerships have been forged
      –additional environmental initiatives have been implemented to
        reduce the event’s ecological footprint
      –public oriented programming is being introduced
   • Feast of Fields Ottawa depends on a core group of volunteers, our
     sponsors, and our partners for its success!
     Canadian Organic Growers – Ottawa Chapter looks forward to
     Feast of Fields 2010 with enthusiasm and excitement. Mark your
     calendars for Sunday, September 18, 2010.

                         Coordinating Team
                         Welcome Message
Today we salute the farmers and chefs who make this event possible. It has been
a tough year for local farmers weather-wise, but because they are farmers and are
dedicated to producing premium food, they persevere. Talk with them, find out
what they grow and why, and consider buying some of their fresh produce.

Our chefs are heroes in their own right. They are here today - on a Sunday even
when their restaurants are filled to capacity - because they care about local and
organic food. They adopt seasonal menus to reflect locally available foods and
increasingly visit the farmers who produce them. Take time to appreciate what
they have prepared and thank them for being here so that you can enjoy fresh,
local organic food at its best.

2009 sees the implementation of a number of initiatives to lessen our
environmental footprint, such as the use of ‘real’ dishes and cutlery, the
availability of composting and recycling bins, and the partnering with Bull Frog
Power to aid in offsetting our use of power from the grid.

At Feast of Fields we present local food produced following organic principles.
Not all farms represented at this event are certified organic, but all farmers have
signed a commitment regarding their organic method of production. Our chefs
have also undertaken to use organic ingredients wherever possible.

We would like to thank the volunteer members of our Coordinating Team: Petra
Stevenson, Michael Ilgert, Gary Weinhold, Tania Palme, Pierre Lemieux, Robert
Oechsli, Nicole Charrette, Gerry Prescott, and Misha Gostick. We would also like
to thank our summer students Andrea Lillico and Gabriel Osborne who did a great
job. Most importantly we would like to thank the many volunteers, sponsors and
partners without whom this event would not be possible.

We hope you enjoy an afternoon of great organic food, great entertainment and
great people! Take the time to talk with some of our teams, Sommelier Debbie
Trenholm of the Savvy Company and Adrian Harewood, of CBC Radio One. Don’t
forget to check out the amazing items in our Silent Auction.

See you at the next Canadian Organic Growers-Ottawa Feast of Fields on
September 18, 2010

                  was introduced to the Growing Up Organic project. Joe has an
                  incredible passion for food, which you will be able to taste in his
                  mouth-watering Chilled Heirloom Tomato Soup (check it out at
                  our booth) created to showcase the heirloom tomatoes grown
                  by fellow 15 year old AJ Shewchuk.

                  This fall, Growing Up Organic will be working hard to create
                  healthy lunch and snack alternatives for schools by introducing
                  school salad bars, building more school yard gardens, and
                  presenting food-based in-class workshops to students and
                  community groups.

      Community Shared Agriculture:
Working together for a sustainable food supply
 This year’s theme for the Feast is “Community Shared Agriculture” (CSA)
 As a shareholder in a CSA, the consumer has a purchase agreement with
 the farm obtained prior to the start of the season. The farmer gains a
 guaranteed market whereas the consumer gains premium quality fresh food
 upon availability.

 Community Shared Agriculture is a partnership of mutual commitment
 between a farm and a community of supporters which provides a direct link
 between the production and consumption of food. CSA helps to establish a
 sense of community and encourages land stewardship.

 A CSA is a mutually beneficial relationship in which a farm supports the
 community’s needs for fresh, nutritious, wholesome food, and community
 support allows a farmer to devote his/her energies to gentle, conscientious
 and sustainable farming practices.

 Members of a CSA share both the harvests and costs equally with other
 members and the farmers. The community of members pledges to support
 the farm with an annual financial commitment.

 What can I expect to receive as a member?
 •   24-26 weeks of farm produce
 •   An open invitation to visit the farm and share in the gardening
 •   An opportunity to pick your food up at the farm or at central locations
 •   A direct connection to the farm and farmers
 •   A fair price based on a well thought-out budget
 •   Workshops for adults and children
 •   Knowledge that your food is grown without harm to the water and soil
 •   A newsletter linking you to the farm, complete with recipes, upcoming events,
     and harvesting information
 •   Opportunities to pick your own flowers and vegetables


 More information on Community Shared Agriculture can be obtained at the
 Feast from the CSA participants or at the COG-Ottawa booth.

Canadian Organic Growers (COG) is a national volunteer, not-for-
profit organization with members in all regions of Canada. COG’s
membership is diverse and includes farmers, gardeners, processors,
retailers and consumers.
COG’s objectives include:
• Fostering a decentralized, bioregionally-based food system which
  cuts transportation costs, bolsters local marketing systems and
  economics and promotes greater regional food self-reliance;
• Promoting practices that promote and maintain long term soil
  fertility, reduce fossil fuel uses, reduce pollution, recycle waste
  and conserve non-renewable resources; and
• Assisting farmers, gardeners, food processors and consumers,
  through education and demonstration, to better understand
  the value and integrity of organic foods and farming systems.

COG activities include:
• The quarterly magazine The Canadian Organic Grower
• Educational materials including books, fact sheets, kits and videos
  produced for growers, consumers, teachers and anyone interested
  in ecological food production
• Training, workshops, conferences, farm and garden tours, dem-
  onstration gardens, farmers’ markets organized by local COG
  chapters
• The Mary Perlmutter Scholarship awarded each year to a graduate
  student undertaking research related to organic agriculture.
• The COG lending library, a unique free mail service of organic read-
  ing materials based in Ottawa
• Co-operation with other organizations and government to achieve
  regulatory change, such as the Consumer and Corporate Affairs
  “Definition of Organic Food” and the Agriculture Canada “National
  Standards for Organic Food Production.”
Canadian Organic Growers is comprised of fifteen local Chapters
across Canada.
