This week on Food For Thought, clam digging on Salt Spring Island with the author of a book about tides, Tom Koppel. You can see more photos on my Facebook photo album. To listen to Tom mucking about with the shovel and explaining how important tides have been to his life, click here.
Tom’s book is called Ebb and Flow, Tides and Life on Our Once and Future Planet. It’s a fascinating look at tides from many different historical, scientific, and yes, food angles. You can order it from amazon.ca and save 37% by clicking on the link above.
