A locavore's potluck



pm257_933

We attended a delicious potluck dinner from foods produced around Victoria, Vancouver Island, B.C. Too bad you can’t taste this video — it was a locavore’s delight! Small-scale food producers brought fresh-caught salmon, pastured pork and lamb, eggs, winter squashes, jerusalem artichoke purée, and fermented vegetables. We talked about producing food in their region: using animals to clear brush, water storage, and creating edible food landscapes on residential parcels. Sadly, land is financially out of reach for many would-be small farmers. (A locavore eats mostly local food). Episode 257.
