LET'S DO THIS
Time to eat, grow, and flourish. Together!
Welcome to Eat.grow.flourish, a journey into eating as healthy and sustainably as we can, as often as we can, by making informed choices. This is a shared journey - we're all in this together - and it is my hope that by sharing my experience and knowledge I will help people feel more confident they are making good decisions about the food on their plates.
It is my belief that our healthy + resilient future depends on a cultural shift that emphasizes choosing local foods first. The Kootenay region of British Columbia has a vibrant local food culture, and a great number of devoted farmers and food producers. I am lucky to call this beautiful area home, and more lucky to call many of these growers and producers my friends. This journey is about making my friends your friends, while striving to enrich more lives through food.
Eat.grow.flourish is about discovering what 'good food' really means and celebrating the reality that it is closer to our fingertips than we might realize. It's time to 'grow and develop in a healthy and vigorous way'... one local bite at a time!
