Farmer Brown and I share our passion for supporting creative entrepreneurs!
Last Thursday, Farmer Brown invited me onto his radio talk show, Tuning Fork on CHLY, to talk about the upcoming Vancouver Island Market. Scroll down to give it a listen!
Tuning Fork dives into important topics surrounding the support of the creative economy on Vancouver Island. We had a chat about the upcoming VIM Spring Market, including revealing some of the vendors attending and what to expect at the two-day show, including our one-day Cribbage Tournament!
Last year, Farmer Brown, an Organic Farmer and Advocate, was a guest speaker at our Spring 2019 Market. During this, he talked about Local Food Systems and how to form intimate relationships with our food as part of a healthy lifestyle. Farmer Brown’s mission is to help educate the next generation of food literate humans and farmers in our community. As a thank you for sharing his expertise, VIM donated $1000 to his summer internship and international practicum in India.
What are your thoughts on the topic of supporting the creative economy here on Vancouver Island?
