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 series central theme is how food is both a political act, as through eating we are supporting different systems, and a cultural act, which can both reaffirm one’s own identity, but also assist us to see other’s worldviews. Each event will feature two components: a hands-on workshop, where participants will work with the artist to make a food product, and a discussion, where participants will have a larger conversation about food while sampling the food from the workshop. -- Oaklands Community Centre is on a ground-level floor, with no stairs throughout the building.
