Farm or Fight–first food heritage workshop

Canadians faced a unique dilemma during World War I: should citizens join the army or ramp up farm production to feed ourselves well while expanding food exports to Britain? The question preoccupied the entire country from 2014 until the war ended, but as a new city at the edge of farmland, Verdun took a leading role in determining a response.

A September 20 presentation in the Verdun greenhouses focusses on the farm or fight dilemma by examining the experiences of the Glass, Hadley, Luker, Murray, Sullivan and Winsper families. We’ll look at Verdun’s evolution from a young entity with few people to a booming metropolis that supplied the highest per-capita enlistment of any city in the British Empire.

Participation costs $15 and includes some war-time recipes to sample and take home. To register, visit

This is the first of four heritage food presentations by Tracey Arial.
