untilJoin artist and garden farmer Elisa Rathje for apple-pressing on a century-old cider press using apples harvested from Appleturnover, her 1½ acre 1895 Salt Spring apple orchard turned food forest and micro-silvopasture. For the workshop, bring along a half-pint mason jar to collect fresh apple juice and come chat about the possibilities of home-scale wild fermentation. During the discussion, Rathje will explore ways in which participants can start to transition to simple living and “radical home & local economies” in an era of ecological crisis and energy descent. The workshop is free, but registration is required as attendance is limited. If Eventbrite is not an accessible way of registration for you, please phone Regan Shrumm at 250-384-4171 x 220, or email at firstname.lastname@example.org to register.

Hand-picked breweries match their beer with food creations from some of the city's best chefs. While the event has already sold out the media is welcome to join us. Thirsty Chef #5 celebrates The Drake Eatery's 5th anniversary and raises funds for the Islands' Chef Collaborative to build a sustainable food culture on Vancouver Island and support microloans to area farmers to grow more food and connect with local merchants. For the first time, two non-profit organizations will join in the collaboration. Cool Aid’s head chef and Manager of Food Services, Paul Stewart, will prepare some mouth-watering delights, served together with our partner The Mustard Seed. “For me personally, and also for Cool Aid, food security is a very important issue,” said Paul Stewart. “We want to support local farmers to the extent possible and are excited to have joined the Island Chef’s Collaborative.” Information: CoolAid.org/food iccbc.ca
