Andrew of Farmstand and OPIRG’s Food For Life working group
with Zsuzsi, PEAS working group and Farmstand founder.

An OPIRG Working Group going by PEAS (Promoting Eating Alternatively & Sustainably) had a busy year, and ended it by putting in a winning proposal for OPIRG’s Public Interest Grant (on top of winning an Annual Peggy McKay Award) in 2009. Their idea? A Famers’ Market right here on the McMaster Campus. Read their winning proposal here: http://opirg.ca/files/PEASPIG.pdf.

This idea was picked up by the MSU and ended up being altered from it’s original design, to what later became known as Farmstand, a great addition to the campus food life!
