Better Taste, Better Health, with Locally Grown Foods

The Okanagan people have a long history of agriculture, as do their non-native neighbours who began settling into the region in the late 19th Century.

In this episode host Tracey Bonneau shares her dedication to fresh, locally grown foods while visiting the community garden at the Pentiction Indian Reserve, and Harker’s Organics, a farm and winery in the village of Cawston, BC.

Tracey gets a tour with Sara Harker of the Harker farm, home to an apple tree that was planted a century ago by great-great-great-grandfather. The two gather eggs from the free run henhouse, and make a stop at the farm’s Rustic Roots winery, where the Harker family produce their award-winning organic fruit wines.

Tracey then gets down to business with her guest and close friend Gabe Cipes of Summerhill Pyramid Winery, cooking up a gourmet omelette and a sald using fresh micro greens.
