Length:

We can find out more about buying safe and healthy food tonight.

There is a free public information session at 7:30 PM at Chesley District High School.

A panel of food processors, producers and retailers will discuss the many options we have as consumers.

Organizer Barb Klages says you can buy food from grocery stores, but also directly from farmers and small producers.

She notes part of the meeting will focus on the challenges small meat packers face.

Students from Chesley District will also offer tours of the Agricultural Specialist High Skills Major program.

The agriculture ministry in Germany has found the farm where sprouts were grown that have been linked to a virulent E. Coli outbreak.

The E. coli outbreak has killed 22 people and sickened over 22-hundred others in Europe.

The World Health Organization has said 10 other European nations and the U-S have reported a total of 90 other victims.

An antique tractor trek through southeastern Manitoba has pulled in close to 34 thousand dollars for two different charities.

47 tractors made the 50-kilometre journey on Saturday -- up from 31 when the first event was held last year.

The tractor trek is a fundraiser for the Mennonite Heritage Village and Eden East.

All but two of the tractors made it to the finish.
