We failed to get organized and secure a guest for this week, so it is a chance for a catch up show with Jon and Blayne.
Blayne has been busy, touring around the island visiting people and places. He also signed up for an online Permaculture Design Course. The course is offered by Geoff Lawton, arguably the foremost instructor of Permaculture in the world, and is based at the Permaculture Research Institute in Australia. Blayne is also trying to create a list of protein producers in the Comox Valley doing it right, pasture and grass based, with no G.M.O. feed for hogs or chickens. If you have any input please join the Comox Valley Paleo group on Facebook.
Jon has been working hard in the Cafe, getting set to launch a new menu, and ramping up for the ever busy summer season. He is also taking part in the B.C. Shellfish Festival Gala Dinner. This event is sold out, and promises to be a special meal for all in attendance. The N.V.I.C.A. installation dinner is coming up soon, with a pig roast at Dove Creek hall. Should be delicious!
