History

FMAM’s first AGM was held in conjunction with a facilitated planning session held on November 10, 2007, less than a year after the first seeds were planted. A large turnout of over 50 people made for an entertaining, fun day where the wishes of the membership were explored. A report penned by facilitator Julie Price of Heifer International pinpointed 5 main areas FMAM’s membership would like the board to focus on, including:

    • Promotion of markets
    • Fundraising
    • Website/newsletter
    • Liaison work
    • Creating informational pieces for markets and vendors
