The League of YEG Home Cheesemakers was invited to meet at Northlands Park as part of their commitment to Urban and Sustainable Agriculture. People have been making cheese at home for centuries so it is a good fit for both organizations. As part of this partnership we are running three workshops for Open Farm Days
Alberta Open Farm Days is about farmers and ranchers inviting their urban and rural neighbours to stop in for a visit to share stories, see demonstrations, and learn more about the farmers who grow their food.

Earlier this year I have the pleasure of going up to Grande Prairie Alberta to teach an Introduction to Cheese Making Class, it was a great experience for both the participants and myself. So much so that I have been asked, and I said yes by the way, to come back in April of 2015 to teach another class. So mark you calendars, April 11, 2015 is the date. If they get a great response another class could be added.
You can find out more about Grande Prairie Regional College and how to register for the class by clicking here.
