Strathcona Food Security Project

Project Update – Autumn 2014

The harvest season is busy as always and here at the Project, we were very fortunate to get some time out on the water and have some fishing luck!  Many jars of sockeye have now been put up and will hopefully last for the next 3 years before another big run comes through (fingers crossed).  We hear that there is some amazing workshops happening across the Island in Tahsis with fermenting experiments with kombucha and sauerkraut, and many of our local farmers are starting to put things to bed for the winter now that the fall storms are upon us.

The Food Action Committee has been hard at work getting geared up and assisting with developing a Request for Proposals so that the Project can move on to a more permanent home.  Thank you to all who have been attending for their wonderful input and support of the process!

We are now looking to present the Food Security workshop in early Spring, hopefully with the worst of the weather behind us and before the growers get too busy.  Stay tuned and share your ideas on the Spring Workshop page!
