We have had a very busy couple of weeks! The new piggies are thrilled with their digs and we have had no instances of escapees frolicking on the lawn of the Deep Cove Chalet Restaurant (something that has happened before!) The first wedding of the year was hosted at Kildara under brilliant sunny skies after three straight days of torrential rain--our miraculous timing strikes again (it really is uncanny the number of couples we have had who dodge the rain bullet by hours!).
In April, we are excited to be a part of Farm Folk City Folk's event, Get Ready, Get Local event at the Victoria Conference Centre!
"Created in partnership by CRFAIR, the Island Chefs’ Collaborative and FarmFolk CityFolk, Get Ready, Get Local showcases Vancouver Island food, and the farmers, ranchers and fishers that produce it, alongside local food artisans, craft brewers, vintners, recognized chefs, culinary professionals and industry leaders.
Capturing the energy and enthusiasm driving the local food movement on Vancouver Island, Get Ready, Get Local provides the public with opportunities to “get local” while offering businesses a one-of-a-kind opportunity to network with other industry folks & promote to an engaged audience!
In anticipation of the upcoming growing season, Get Ready, Get Local will provide workshops, training, education and resources to help you or your business connect to local food and sustainable agriculture on Vancouver Island.
Get Ready, Get Local is a festival with a mission, using its net proceeds to support the work of it’s non-profit partners–CRFAIR, the Island Chefs’ Collaborative and FarmFolk CityFolk."
So come and visit us--sustainable agriculture is everyone's problem! If you like eating, this is an important issue for you! Tasty treats will be had and we will be there answering questions!
