Home Grown: Local Sustainable Food
If you like beautiful photos, food and farmers then the Home Grown exhibit at the Museum of Vancouver is worth a visit. It is the perfect way to spend an hour or more on a gray rainy day in Vancouver and we know there are plenty of those on the horizon.
Home Grown is an exploration of local food production and farming in the Vancouver region presented by MOV in collaboration with Farm Folk/City Folk. If you are like me and get tired of reading and reading and reading at museums this is the perfect exhibit for you as it is presented through 39 beautiful photographs by Brian Harris.
I left with a greater appreciation for local food production, even more admiration and gratitude for the hard working farmers that grown our food and feeling inspired that my everyday food choices do make a difference towards a more sustainable food system.
Be sure to check out the ‘wall of preserves’ and pick up some seeds in the wheelbarrow on your way out and get growing!
The exhibit runs until January 2, 2011.
Here are a few shots of local, sustainable food from our summer holidays in Oregon & Washington.
