I had the pleasure of interviewing Shannon from the Lifecycles Project here in Victoria for this weeks episode, which is the Harvest topic for the Canadian Food Experience Project. Head on over to to see all of the other bloggers from across Canada who participated in this topic as well.

I was so inspired by hearing all about the work that LifeCycles is doing — past present and future! Much of it was so far off my radar, I had no idea that they run a garden for the 6 mile pub or that they are working with View Royal to create a community urban food forest with property donated by a "plant nerd" who had cultivated 3/4 of an acre of amazing plants!

This episode's sponsor message is actually about another non-profit that just launched last week in Victoria! Mealshare is a non-profit started by a few UVic grads that is giving meals to people who access OurPlace if you buy a meal that has their symbol next to it at Zambris, Canoe Club, Lido or Westcoast Waffles.
