Other news:

FarmFolk CityFolk annual local food celebration and fundraiser, Feast of Fields, will be held at Sandown Centre this year! Feast of Fields is a wandering gourmet harvest festival that strengthens the connections between farm folks and city folks. With a wine glass and linen napkin in hand, guests stroll across farmers’ fields, through barns, past tractors, and around chicken coops, listening to live music, and tasting gourmet creations from top BC chefs, farmers, fishers, ranchers, food artisans, and beverage producers.

Watch the video below taken taken in Fall by Eric Ouellette of the UVic Community Engagement CE300 Class:
