Video: Salt Spring Island Space Agency - On the Up and Up

Salt Spring’s incredible future has arrived! The Salt Spring Island Space Agency has been established. Located on the roof of Country Grocer, its inaugural rocket launch to Mars took place this month. All systems were set to go when Space Man, the rocket’s pilot, took stock of his supplies. Toilet paper was alarmingly low. It’s a good thing the Space Agency is located where it is! Space Man hurried into Country Grocer to replenish his rolls. Staff were surprised to see Space Man―the Real McCoy―ankling up and down aisles and dragging his oxygen tube. They filled his carts and helped him load up the rocket just in the nick of time. Attaboy, Space Man! He’s got his priorities straight. This launch was handled by qualified aerospace technicians and attended by a farewell band. Together they ushered Salt Spring into its new era of space age whackiness and exploration. No baloney! Keep your peepers open for “A Trip to Mars” when you head to the Fritz Theatre this week! Yo…

New Farm-To-Table Eating Adventure Opens

Salt Spring farmers and foodies are warming up to farm-to-table dining. Within the last couple of years, several farms have hosted this kind of event, such as Stowel Lake, Foxglove, Knoth, Bullock Lake, and Golden Tree farms. In this last week, Redwing Farm joined the fun! The dining is a social experience. Settings are arranged on long tables, which means people are seated next to and across from acquaintances and strangers who become friends while course after course is served. The dishes are incredibly fresh as most of the food is grown on the farm or on other local farms―picked the same day it’s cooked. Chefs include local talent or visitors, such as Chef Haan Palcu-Chang who came to visit his mother and, while he was at it, feed 175 people at Bullock Lake Farm over a 3-day period! Haan makes part of his living creating “pop-up restaurants” in various locations in Canada. It’s a concept that works if a chef wants to avoid the high overhead costs of opening a restauran…
