The ugly side of tart cherry jam production. There will be jam! Flash freezing as much as possible and will get back to it after vacation!! See you at the July 3rd Sycamore Farmer’s Market! #tartcherries#localfood#handpicked#womenwhofarm
Under the radar. Bar Dojo is legit! Ahi tuna, deep fried soft shell crab, avocado rice, cucumber, carrots, spring greens, and an egg over the top. All local ingredients and community-focused. Ridiculous. #localfood#edmonds#poke#restaurant
I stumbled upon these wise words on the @sustain_table site this morning // “There is a common misconception that organics is a new fad or something reserved for left-wing hippies, greenies or the well-to-do. What people forget is that organic farming is actually the traditional way of farming. Industrial or conventional farming became the new norm for industrialised countries after the ‘green-revolution‘ of the 1950s and 60s. This period saw the development of new seed varieties, and mass use of artificial fertilisers, pesticides and irrigation to produce higher yields.” These words resonated with me for a number of reasons, and beyond their obvious relationship with food production, they are just as applicable to our political, economic and social systems. I often get branded a “hippie” (mostly in an affectionate manner by family members) when I quietly go about my business of buying local food, avoiding toxic substances in our house, composting, replacing plastics with glass and stainless steel, having a wardrobe consisting of eight pieces on high rotation...etc etc. I’m frequently bewildered by these characterisations (which, while delivered in jest, are subtly negative) and that we’ve reached a point (that probably has its origins in the industrial revolution) that acting in accordance with our ecosystem has become an “alternative” practice. We are animals after all..? 🤔 I am pretty sure our children will feel & see things differently .... #ethicalfood#sustainability#mindfulness#foodsecurity#ecofriendly#organicfarming#nontoxicliving#traditionalpractices#localfood#children#nextgeneration#livingwithinourlimits
Cutting the tops off the IBC tanks to make biological filters for the fish farm. Bacteria will be living on the surface of small rocks in these tops and converting ammonia (excreted by the fish) into nitrate fertiliser for the plants👍👍 cleaning the water and feeding the plants 🌿🌿
