Salt Spring Livestock Producers are eligible to receive a grant of at least $100,000 towards a mobile meat processing unit if they can raise matching funds. However the grant could be as much as $150,000 if cut and wrap services can be provided at the same location. The funding comes from the Meat Transition Assistance Program, which is managed by the BC Food Processors Association.

With music by Marianne Grittani
Marianne Grittani began performing in the late 60s when she was 14 in Toronto, Ontario. Her music, with so many varied influences defies categorization. She calls it ‘folky, funky and anything in between’. She explores a lot of musical territory, on standard acoustic six string guitar, a resonator guitar and mandolin. Her compelling voice along with her strong sense of rhythm, melody and dynamics weave through and around her lyrics to create an engaging musical tapestry.
