happy-happy!

happy-happy!

Hello all,

As you no doubt know, this past Sunday marked the end of the 50 days of the 2009 50-mile eat-local challenge. I had to be out of town at the annual gathering of the BC Food Systems Network, so I didn’t get to announce the winners of the draw for prizes graciously donated by some local business and individuals.

And so, without further ado, here are the prizes, their donors, and the lucky winners:

  • A one-pound tub of local spot prawns and one live crab (Donated by Turner Bay Seafoods) goes to Julie Thorne.
  • One case (twelve jars) of mixed preserves (Donated by Mountain Ash Farms) goes to Jo-Anne Diggon.
  • Dinner and a movie for two (Donated by Manzanita Restaurant) goes to Ryan Thoms.
  • One $30 gift certificate (Donated by Bemused Bistro) goes to Dagmar McKenzie.
  • A new copy of Robin Wheeler’s Gardening for the Faint of Heart (Donated by Kingfisher Used Books) goes to Dennis McRae.
  • A one-hour garden consultation (Donated by Jonathan van Wiltenburg of Eden Horticultural Services) goes to Amanda Zaikow.
  • 3 books on gardening & seed-saving (Donated by Heinz Becker) goes to Jennifer Blampin.
  • A copy of James Mackinnon and Alisa Smith’s book The 100-Mile Diet (Donated by the Food Security Project) goes to Robert Mackle.
  • A copy of James Mackinnon and Alisa Smith’s book The 100-Mile Diet (Donated by the Food Security Project) goes to Gary Olson.
  • A copy of James Mackinnon and Alisa Smith’s book The 100-Mile Diet (Donated by the Food Security Project) goes to Sandra Tonn.
  • A $15 gift certificate (Donated by Breakwater Books) goes to Isabel Loveluck.
  • A gift certificate for a half-hour massage (Donated by Behr’s Massage Clinic) goes to Kathy Hodgins.
  • Blueberry plant (Donated by Aaron Mazurek at Coast Realty) goes to Margaret Thistle.

Remember that the seven episodes of the Powell River 50-mile podcast continue to live on the internet, at http://pr50.podomatic.com/. Thanks again to the following individuals who allowed me to record them and post the conversations on the web:

  • Jeffrey Renn of Bemused Bistro;
  • Nia Wegner of Loaves and Fishes Catering Company;
  • Melissa Call of Sunshine Organics and Ecossentials;
  • Amy Sharp of Manzanita Restaurant;
  • Alison Coburn of Turner Bay Seafoods;
  • Carol Sigvaldasson of The Flying Yellow Bread Bowl;
  • Lyn Adamson, founder of the 50-mile eat-local challenge.

Thank you again to everyone who participated, everyone who offered suggestions or help, everyone who donated a prize, everyone who allowed themselves to be the subject of a weekly podcast, and anyone else who supports local food.
