Industrial Harvest


Grain CSAs in BC by sarah kavage

Out on the western fringes of the continent, British Columbia seems to be a smallish hotbed of experiments in local grain growing.  Today I found out about not one, not two but three recently formed CSAs devoted to growing wheat – Island Grains on Vancouver Island; Urban Grains on the mainland.  Further inland in the Creston Valley, the Creston Valley Food Action Coalition and parter organizations started BC’s first CSA devoted to grain.  These folks actually organized a fleet of sailboats to transport their harvest – see the radio series devoted to the venture here

I promise a longer update, soon – the last couple months have been devoted to trying to bring together all the moving parts of this project.  There are a lot of them, but it’s slowly starting to come together.
