Event Description

Many things have changed this year, but one thing that hasn’t? The dedication many Ontario residents have for helping people around the world who are hungry.

The concert features Naomi Bristow, a country music singer and yodeler from Beeton, Ontario.

In past years, the concert has been held live and in-person in Meaford. While it’s not how anyone would have preferred, Bristow and Reinders are optimistic the show will still be entertaining.
As Bristow points out, “We will make the best of current situations...the show must go on!”

For his part, Reinders is excited to see the show come together, and to bring people together virtually around support for a shared cause. “Knowing that people who care about their global neighbours will be coming together, even virtually, to make a difference is something to celebrate,” he says.

Anyone interested is invited to visit www.foodgrainsbank.ca/news/world-food-day-virtual-concert/ to learn more or to make a donation.

Can I Plant Corn in Rotation After Canola?

Planting corn after a crop of canola is generally not recommended, and the reason why has to do with beneficial fungi living in the soil. However, some studies and anecdotal experience in Ontario have shown that this rotation is not always problematic.
