Here is a my Canola Camp bio:
Dorothy Long is a freelance home economist and has worked with CanolaInfo since 1995 and proudly boast the honour of being at every Canola Camp (they started in 1998)! Before working for the Canola Farmers, she taught home economics for three years, then branched into agri-food marketing. She has worked with such groups as the Saskatchewan Pulse Growers, SaskFlax, Wild Boar Association, Only Oats, Saskatchewan Greenhouse Growers and Saskatchewan Food Processors. She also served as the executive director of Cuisine Canada, an organization that celebrated and promoted Canadian foods. Dorothy believes in supporting farming and was a founding member of two organizations that promoted locally grown food - Saskatchewan Bounty and Growing Saskatchewan. She writes a monthly food column for a farm newspaper - the Western Producer - and has a food blog called the Prairie Kitchen Companion. She is a prairie farm girl at heart and lives on her family's farm near Lloydminster, Saskatchewan. Her husband, Peter, a former greenhouse grower now works as an environmental scientist in the oil industry. They have two busy, musical children, Kate and Josh.
