The Joy of Feeding…and eating!

In Doings on June 9, 2012 at 10:38 AM

Have you set foot somewhere and knew without a doubt that you were meant to be there, and nowhere else?

I had that sense in May 2011 when I walked onto the UBC Farm with my sister for the inaugural Joy of Feeding.

For me, it was a natural affair: food + outdoors + families + music + stories = complete satiation.

The event happens again tomorrow, Sunday, June 10. Tickets are $50, which may seem steep but when you consider that all funds go directly into our local urban farm and you get to eat as much as you want from 16 different cooks plus you’ll hear live music (including the acoustic Dan Mangan) and meet like-minded neighbours…you’ll realize that $50 gets you pretty far in life.

So, friends, will I see you tomorrow afternoon, 1pm?

Wish she could be with me again this year.
