Stoked about this collaboration- between us at Iyé Creative, the farmer women at Upbeet Garden Farm, and Chef Zak from Elk and the Tide Catering. From farm, to kitchen, to the market for you to enjoy and share with your family/friends over the holidays ❤️ Reciprocal relationships are nurtured with respect & trust. Our partnership with @upbeetgarden has been magical and we've been learning from each other.
They grew beautiful beets to be turned into pickles under the supervision of the incredible Zak from @elkandthetidecatering. This way we're highlighting and supporting local makers whose knowledge is so rich & vast.
The sales of these jars will go towards growing and distributing accessible food boxes for BIPOC and other vulnerable communities next year and beyond. As a small scale farm & social enterprise working in collaboration for food justice, we are looking for creative ways to make this project financially sustainable in the long term. We hope this kind of localized system, direct from farmers into the homes of marginalized folks can continue ~ it takes support from the whole community.
Pick up a jar @esquimaltmarket holiday market on Sunday Nov 27th 11-5pm ~ where we can tell you more about our future visions for small scale agriculture. You’ll find Zak and his delicious dressings there too!
How we choose to spend our precious pennies is huge; whether we opt to support local projects, or faceless corporations. Take back your spending power and redirect it towards local initiatives fighting for food justice and localized systems ~ Farmers Markets are the best way to buy direct from your local producers.
See you all on Nov 27th 11-5pm and pickup a jar @esquimaltmarket holiday on Sunday.
If you can't make the market and would love to grab some pickled beets, send us a message to preorder! :)
Support our work. This is circular economy.
