Niagara Farm Day organizers hope this event will become an annual opportunity for families to spend time learning about Niagara agriculture and its important contribution to our food supply and the local economy.
Visitors to Niagara Farm Day will be able to visit with a number of primary producers who will each have a display featuring the primary focus of their farm. This will include dairy, bees, horse, beef, grains & oilseeds, flowers and more. Plans are also under way to allow visitors to experience a virtual reality tour of a farm with technology supplied by Farm & Food Care.
As the event draws closer, additional details and additional confirmations of participating commodities will become available. In the meantime, organizers invite everyone to “save the date” and plan to attend a fun agricultural themed family event. A great way to welcome the Spring season.
This event is hosted by the Niagara Federations of Agriculture & West Niagara Agricultural Society.

“The social isolation of seniors can cause communities to suffer a lack of social cohesion, higher social costs, and the loss of an unquantifiable wealth of experience that older adults bring to our families, neighbourhoods, and communities.” (Stats Canada, 2016). Reaching out to socially isolated older adults requires us to rethink our traditional service and program delivery methods.
During this webinar, Bonnie Schroeder will review why older adults are isolated and how this isolation differs from loneliness and solitude. Rachel Sutcliffe will then present findings from an Ottawa-based program entitled “Seniors Centre Without Walls”. Nancy Angus will conclude the presentation by describing the “Grand Individuals Aging with Neighbours in Thunder Bay” (GIANTS) program.
This webinar will be of particular interest to community planners and service providers interested in better understanding how we can connect to and include socially isolated older adults.
A resource package will be provided to participants following the event.
This webinar is hosted by the Age-Friendly Communities Outreach Program.
