The BC farmers’ market world experienced a great loss this past week with the death of Mary Forstbauer, BCAFM's past president and one of its most colorful, tireless and loved workers. Mary was a passionate organic farmer and advocate for farm vendors as well as local organic food. Mary and I go back quite a few years so I can say that her style and community involvement will certainly be missed. The BCAFM will miss Mary - we were all touched by her passion for farming - and I know that everyone will have her family in their thoughts.
Our organization will be represented at a celebration of her life on November 9th at 3pm at the Chilliwack Alliance Church. All are welcome to attend.
