POSTPONED – Farmed & Foraged – An Earth Day Feast
We are sorry to announce that due to restrictions around larger gatherings (of more than 50), temporary vending restrictions and the request for social distancing, our Farmed and Foraged 2020 has been postponed.
This difficult decision was made by Sea Cider, Toque Catering and The Nature Conservancy of Canada. All tickets sales will be refunded and we will aim to have the event at a later date.
Stay safe everyone!
Gather together in honour of our one and only planetary home as we indulge in a gastronomic adventure inspired by Vancouver Island’s natural abundance. Enjoy lively conversation in the community over a multi-course meal created by Toque Catering.
The menu will feature foraged foods from the nearby forests and ocean, alongside farm-fresh produce and meats. Specially crafted cider cocktails inspired by local woodland botanicals will complement each course, with wine and beer also available.
This award-winning* event is a fundraiser in support of the Nature Conservancy of Canada’s conservation work in British Columbia. By attending this feast, you will be contributing to the direct and permanent protection of natural spaces and critical habitats across BC.
Honouring Earth Day
Earth Day was first held 50 years ago, on April 22, 1970, and since then has grown into a global day of celebration and call to action for the environment. This year’s theme for Earth Day is climate action. Conserving forests, wetlands, grasslands and marine ecosystems is one of the most important actions we can take to mitigate climate change and build resiliency in our local communities, so Sea Cider and Toque Catering are pleased to be donating all proceeds from this event to Nature Conservancy of Canada / Conservation de la nature Canada.
*Toque Catering has twice won national awards for the creativity, food design and unique menu of Farmed & Foraged at the Canadian Event Industry Awards, in 2017 and 2019 (category: Best Overall Catered Event).
