  1. Bonjour, je suis conseillère en transformation alimentaire au ministère de l’agriculture, pêcherie et alimentation du Québec pour la région de l’Abitibi-Témiscamingue. Votre programme est très intéressant et nous nous demandions si vous accepteriez des producteurs et agrotransformateurs de la région de l’Abitibi-Témiscamingue (première question).
    Deuxième question: Est-ce que tout se fait en anglais? Y-a-t-il un service de traduction en français?
    Nous envisageons d’offrir à nos entreprises d’y participer.
    Merci et bonne journée,

    Lyse Roberge

  2. Hi,

    I am a local dietitian, very interested in attending some of the talks on food security. Unfortunately I don`t have the means to purchase a full pass, I was wondering if it is possible to attend a talk or two without having to purchase the full weekend or day pass?

    Thank you!

    I have registered for the Rebuilding the Local Value Chain tour. When will I be receiving additional information about the exact meeting place, time, etc.?

  4. I’m seeing two different prices for “tour” only….could you please clarify if it $10.00 or $50.00 ? for the Apple tour on the 26 October.

    Also, is the tour handicap accessible?
