I am happy to announce a sweet project close to my heart and of course my belly! I am working with the Fraser Valley Strawberry Growers Association on their online strategy. I will also produce four short films that will focus on the the local strawberry industry in the Fraser Valley.
Pinch me please. This is a really amazing project to be part of as I am so passionate about local foods and where we get them from AKA, “The 100-Mile Diet”.
The other day we filmed quite a few farms in Abbotsford and in Langley as well as met the growers and even had a chance to sample the goods. It was so beautiful in the valley. It was my first time touring this area and to my surprise was such a stunning landscape and a lovely community of passionate foodies.
Sadly with this whole weather change, the strawberries are taking their sweet time blooming but we had a chance to speak with berry scientists and they said that we may have a longer season. This is only if that darn sun starts to shine.
I am looking forward to training the growers as well as the association on how to share their knowledge, passion as well as their findings online as well as share their stories of berry growing. Stay tuned for more to come!
