Last June Farmer Dan and I hosted the first Valley to Shore Farm Tour. About 40 people of all ages made the trek out to Local Harvest in Chilliwack. It was a great time for folks to hear from their farmer and learn more about where their food comes from. We had fun picking strawberries, learning about the role of the pigs and feeding the alpacas.
This fall we are doing it again! Come out October 1st and meet us in the parking lot for 10am.
We don't like to rush and we want to make the most of our time out there, so the tour will be about 4hrs total with lunch in the middle. Bring your walking shoes, dress for the weather, hopefully we'll be treated to a sunny autumn day, and be prepared to learn and be inspired.
Knowing where your food comes from is a real gift. Living in the city, it's easy to become completely disconnected to that which is supposed to nourish us and the hard working people that grow for us. Take this opportunity to walk the fields with your farmer. Hear him teach about Local Harvest's farming practices and see with your own eyes the food that just might end up in your next Harvest Box.
The wood fired pizza oven will be on and the market will be open as well. Here's the link to register, just so we know approximately how many smiling faces to expect. https://www.eventbrite.ca/e/fall-farm-tour-tickets-417753490937
