Grow Local Fair hatches at the Laurel
Oct 19, 2013 / 1:44 pm
The first ever Grow Local Fair wasn’t the only new thing hatching at the Laurel Packinghouse Saturday.
A pair of fertilized chicken eggs was on display in an incubator sold by Quality Farms as well as a device called an Ovascope used to see inside the eggs.
“The Grow Local Fair is a great opportunity to get our local producers and farmers under one roof and have everyone come through and learn about sustainability and how they can buy local,” said Lindsay Canning, marketing coordinator for the Kelowna Museum Society who organized the event.
“After 18 years of the Cherry Fair and 24 years of the Apple Fair, we felt people needed a change so we’ve taken the two and combined them to make one big fall harvest fair.”
Cara Geistlineger brought her sons, Lachlan and Quinton.
"We love going to farmers' markets," she said. "And it's too cold to be outside."
The indoor event runs Saturday from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. Admission is $2 per person, $5 per family.
