This year Sooke Food CHI implemented a consumer education campaign as well as a series of three workshops to assist local farmers in business development. The campaign highlights local food producers with a series of short video vignettes that tell the story behind the market stalls. The video series, created by videographer Kay Lovett, consists of one-minute short videos introducing local food producers, their specialties, products and stories.
