Resilience Festival 2022 is just around the corner!

We’re thrilled to bring you the 11th annual Resilience Festival running the week of Monday, March 21 to Saturday, March 26.

A celebration of spring and community for one and all, it’s all about sustainable food, community resiliency, collective healing, and supporting our local community! And Guelph is extremely fortunate to have deep experts in on many topics right here in our community!   

This year’s festival will follow the same format as last year’s successful online gathering! There will be many opportunities to connect with one another as well as attend virtual workshops, presentations, Q&A sessions with our presenters! Keep your eyes peeled for updates about presenters and registrations.  Also, check out the Seedy Saturday virtual market on this site and support our local seed vendors, farms and the other businesses participating in the market!

Note: While it’s disappointing not to be ‘in person’ this year, the organizing team felt it was better to have a virtual Festival with certainty than an in-person Festival with little certainty.”

what people said about the 2021 festival

Re: Earth Hour Potluck

  “We were delighted to see the conversations organically going on for hours. That was great to see.”

Re: Keynote Presentation

 “I've made the recent decision to take a leave of absence from my job to do the full-season new farmer training program. I'm both excited and nervous about the career transition but after watching your presentation last night I was reassured that it's the right thing to do."

Re: Vegan/Vegetarian Kitchen Workshop

"I cook a lot, but my partner is vegetarian so I want to learn more about that. Honestly, I got a lot out of the workshop! Kim answered a lot of questions I've had about eating vegetarian, and I got a couple great recipes too!"


getting the most out of the virtual festival 

Throughout this year's virtual festival, we will be using zoom for all of our workshops. Participate by asking questions or joining the chat during sessions, and share a selfie of yourself during the festival, tagging @transitionguelph.
