Saskatoon Food Forest Initiative 
A group of people have set up a Facebook group to promote the development of a food forest in Saskatoon. Their goal is to "design, plant, and grow an edible urban forest garden that will help Saskatoon residents (particularly in the core neighbourhoods) have access to locally grown, nutritious, non-commodified food."

Mi Tierra Mexican Store & Tortilleria 
Mi Tierra Mexican Store & Tortilleria has opened a store at 2124-C 22nd Street W. They also plan to open a restaurant serving authentic Mexican food and handmade corn and flour tortillas.

Artisan Cheese Fights Back 
There was an outbreak of E.coli in Scotland last July and the authorities placed the blame on a local artisan cheese produced using raw milk. They went on to impose a blanket ban on all the company’s cheeses. Testing by third parties has shown that it was highly unlikely that the cheese was to blame and that it is primarily an unjustified prejudice against cheese made with unpasteurized milk. Once again, it pays to do your research and continue to follow up on stories. The first news article may not provide all the facts. (Sustainable Food Trust)
