Fraser Valley Slow Food Cycle Tour

fraser valley cycle food tour photoThe Fraser Valley Slow Food Cycle tour an annual event and I recall  when I was first introduced to it back in 2009.

Trudie Bouchard was a main instigator in this program from Limbert Mountain Farm near Harrison Lake in Agassiz. Trudie and I go back a long way to growing up in Edmonton in the 60’s and 70’s and meeting up again by chance nearly 40 years later. I was in ecotourism looking for interesting spots to visit while she an her husband Claude had been building a teahouse, demonstration kitchen  and retail shop on their herb farm.

The event was a success right off the bat, and has grown to be a fantastic program that supports farm gate producers and local artisans. Almost makes me wish I lived back in the lower mainland. Learn more here
