BC Day weekend often means great weather in the Lower Mainland with all sorts of fun, outdoor activities. On Sunday, August 3, join Chef Chris Whittaker of Forage at Fraser Common Farm in Aldergrove for a four course “Whole Hog” feast.
The fun begins at 3pm with a sparkling wine reception, a tour through the farm as guests help to forage for their meal (from a list provided by Chef) and then sit down to a long table dinner with beverages supplied by R & B Brewing and Backyard Vineyards. All of this for a very reasonable $75 per person. Tickets available at Eventbrite or at Glorious Organics, home of Fraser Common Farm.
This dinner is a fundraising event for Fraser Common Farm as they install a permanent outdoor community water station. The structure will be constructed from an up-cycled shipping container and will feature a living rooftop and grey water system. Their intention is to expand their ability to host educational and community events on the farm including children’s camps, perma-culture courses and of course, more dinners.
Food Day Canada takes place Saturday, August 2 and is a chance for all Canadians to join hands in one massive celebration in praise of our farmers and fishers; our chefs and researchers…and, above all, our home cooks. Chef Whittaker will feature select items from the “Whole Hog” on the Forage dinner menu on August 2 then continue the Food Day Canada celebrations at the Fraser Common Farm feast the next day. Forage celebrates the philosophy all year round, so why not make Food Day Canada an entire weekend, eh?
