 As the days get longer and the hints of spring are hidden, just out of sight, here is another edition of Hort Snacks to stimulate and hopefully fill your mind with useful information.

Winter extension season is drawing to a close, but there are still plenty of things to do and lots of educational events and activities to take part in before the growing season begins. In this edition, you’ll find announcements for a few more events, as well as information from a couple of different workshops and conferences, in case you weren’t able to be there.

You’ll also find a written version of a presentation that has been given a couple of time this past month, which dives into the reasonably interesting data piles that make up the 2016 Canadian census (and its 3 previous siblings). The purpose of the dive is to illustrate how the census data supports the everyday realities in communities across Alberta, which is that the ethnocultural landscape of Alberta (meaning the ethnic diversity) has changed. This represents new opportunities for horticulture crop producers, as well as challenges as adjustments are made to ensure producers and consumers are connecting.

As you head towards spring, don’t forget to stay in touch. Send your ideas, your observations, your suggestions and your information (particularly your price information), via email, phone or by dropping in. We’re happy to help.
