Winter Locavore’s Feast

February 8 @ 5:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Carnivores eat meat, Locavores eat Local!

Saturday, February 8th, The Rural Alternatives Research & Training Society is hosting its Winter Locavore Feast at the Vallican Whole Community Centre.

Come celebrate our local food growing, cooking and eating, as well as our wonderful & sometimes unusual talents, and gather with all. Doors open at 5 PM, dinner is at 6, and figure out what you are going to do for Six Slocan Valley Minutes starting at 7 PM. (There will be a supervised creative arts workshop in the basement for children, starting at 6:30 PM).

So bring a generous Potluck Dish made with as many local ingredients as possible (meat is ok, but mark your dishes with ingredients) and come out at 5, dinner at 6, and Six Slocan Valley Minutes at 7. This is where all who want to get up on the stage and share almost anything they want to for no more than 6 minutes…could be a poem or a story, a rant, a song, or a lesson. Two once took apart a chain saw and put it back together in six minutes, others made Pesto, one man taught his child to rub two sticks together to make fire… watch out for the Hook! Operated partly by the children of the community.

There will also be a Silent Auction with interesting objects, antique and new, an exceptional set of motorcycle leathers for some lucky woman, services, amazing books, artwork, pottery, chotchkes and large gift baskets all donated by Kootenay businesses and individuals to support the work of RARTS and the Vallican Whole Community Centre, as well as to celebrate the Local Food Movement of the Kootenays and those who grow our food and work the land.

There will be a fabulous meal, great laughter, fun for children and theatre as only we as a community can make together. Hope to see you there! Donations welcome at the Door!
