How To Learn More About Local Food – Go see Joel Salatin!

SalatinI've been wanting to meet Joel Salatin for quite some time now, ever since I read about him in The Omnivore's Dilemma and watched him in the Food, Inc. documentary.

Joel Salatin is a third generation 'clean food' farmer from Virginia. He describes his family farm, Polyface, Inc., as a pasture-based, beyond organic, local-market farm and informational outreach in the Shenandoah Valley.  He is passionate, outspoken and an ambassador for change when it comes to the industrial farm system.

If you live on Vancouver Island, the great folks at Brambles Market in Courtenay have organized two opportunities to see Joel Salatin on Sunday, September 26th.  You can get all the info you need right here.

Salatin book If you live in Vancouver, your chance to meet Joel Salatin happens Monday night, September 27th at UBC.  Proceeds from ticket sales at this event organized by Barbara-jo's Books to Cooks benefit UBC Farm and your ticket price includes a copy of Joel's book, The Sheer Ecstasy of being a Lunatic Farmer. I'll be at the UBC event, I hope to see you there.  In November, I'll be doing a talk of my own in Courtenay organized by Brambles, more details about that soon.

    Attn Chefs (or anyone who knows a chef)!

    GECafe is looking for high-end, independent chefs with a reputation for using local/seasonal ingredients to help us build a new and exciting ‘living cookbook’ website. is a new consumer website launching in October where Canadians can seek seasonal recipes, featuring local ingredients from the top chefs they know and respect. Visitors are encouraged to visit local restaurants to try the dishes, then give them a go at home with the recipes provided.

    We will be heavily promoting through various channels such as blogs, facebook, partner websites, radio, in-store promotions etc. It’s a massive media campaign that you and your restaurant will benefit from being a part of. All we need from you is one of your delicious recipes. Because we know that time, in a kitchen, is a precious commodity, we’ve made the process simple and hassle free. Provide us with a recipe and a bio, and we will take care of the rest! It’s a unique opportunity and we’d love to have your participation this fall.

    If you are interested, please do not hesitate to get in touch at email hidden; JavaScript is required . The site will be launching the beginning of October.
