On the evening of the Fall Equinox 2013 we joined local urban gardeners from Cedar Cottage Community Garden in a delightful meal in the middle of the lovely garden under the skytrain. It was a rainy night but the sun did show itself just long enough for me to get some beautiful photos of the kitchen tent and the tasty food that was being prepared on the grill that had been set up there.

Much of the vegetables, herbs and fruits used in the meal were harvested from the overflowing green plots around us. On the tables were asian pears from the food forest.

Chef Mike Preston of La Quercia created a raft of dishes, and we were particularly pleased as most of the meal was fine for us on our grain-free diet (GAPS/SCD).

The evening kicked off with delicious Sorrel Soup served in mason jars. As folks began to take their seats platters of Heirloom Tomato Salad with Bruschetta were laid out on the tables. The platters included carmelized onions and a light balsamic dressing. A chorus of moans of delight rose from everyone at the table as the tomatoes were sampled.

America’s Nuclear (Cancer) Corridor

America’s Nuclear (Cancer) Corridor

Today is July 16th and the 68th anniversary of the testing of the first atomic bomb in 1945 at the Trinity Test Site, 35 miles SE of Socorro, NM so I thought it appropriate to post our recent tour of the North American nuclear corridor. I must confess it was a totally accidental tour. We had no int ...

Such a beautiful place to forage for berries -- just look at the size of that blackberry patch! ...

Vancouver Island

Vancouver Island

On a quick trip to Vancouver Island we stopped in Ucleulet, Port Alberni and Nanaimo. Learned an interesting fact about Port Alberni (a 30 foot tsunami hit it in the 1950s). It is a strange place because it is a deep port to the Pacific Ocean even though it is more towards the Eastern side of the is ...

City Street Garden – Reclaimed with Seed Bombs

This is a project I have been working on for a couple years now. After few failed guerrilla garden attempts at various places around the city I found a good spot for a garden. The first year I put in a couple beds, the second year I put in three more and used them as experimental plots to test out a ...
