The Atlantic Canadian Organic Regional Network (ACORN) will host its twelfth annual conference at the Holiday Inn Halifax Harbourview from November 11th to 13th, featuring over 40 workshops on organic food and farming, as well as a sold-out trade-show. 

Saturday's Celebratory Banquet is a conference highlight. The evening will feature live music by Heather Kelday; an amazing silent auction of over 100 items (heirloom seeds, magazine subscriptions, local art, gift certificates and much more!); and a keynote speech from Katherine DiMatteo, president of the International Federation of Organic Agricultural Movements, on the global organic movement.


The banquet menu, prepared by Chef Erwin Palo, features:

Hot Potato Leek Soup
Fresh Green Salad with Boates Pear Vinaigrette

Harvest Vegetable Chickpea Curry
Rosemary and Garlic Marinated Roast Beef
Maple Roasted Root Vegetables

Inglis Orchard View Apple Pie with Blueberry Compote and Whipped Cream


Everyone is welcome. Tickets are $30, including tax and gratuity - an incredible value for a meal of this calibre!
