The goal of the AFWA Legacy Project is to raise awareness and educate secondary and post-secondary students about careers in agricultural journalism and communications, as well as the importance of communications in all facets of the agri-food industry.

A SUCCESSFUL SUMMER SOLSTICE TOUR

AFWA tours southern Alberta

The clouds parted and the sun shone down upon the annual Alberta Farm Writers’ Association summer tour and Annual General Meeting, held Wednesday June 19 to Friday, June 21, 2024.

No AFWA event would be complete if the group hadn’t gathered for a brewery tour. Luckily the 2024 tour kicked off on Wednesday evening at the Theoretical Brewing company founded by Kris Fischer and Kelti Baird. As friends and home-brew enthusiasts, Kris and Kel began a journey in 2012 that would ultimately lead from brewing on the back deck of a west-side house to the establishment and growth of Lethbridge’s first micro-brewery, opening its doors in December 2015.
