There was live music, a chance to try your hand at sheet mulching, learn about growing your own food and browse vendors that support our local food community.
I enjoyed talking to Mike from 8 1/2 acres, at 6776 Somenos Road. Mike, Talynm and their business partners will be offering a CSA box program in 2012.
Eugene Fleck of Boys Road was on hand with his Hunter Bee houses and Craig Evans from Growing Opportunities Community Farm Project, currently farming 2 acres at Providence talked about his group's focus - working to help support food security.
Duncan council candidate and friend, Jen Holden mentioned one of my favourite Margaret Mead quotes in her blog this morning - "Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has."
It was a pleasure to be among such a small (yet growing - pun intended) group of folks today. Cowichan - you rock!
