Carolyn Herriot, one of B.C.’s top organic gardening gurus and author of The Zero-Mile Diet Cookbook: Seasonal Recipes for Delicious Homegrown Food (Harbour Publishing) is coming to Grand Forks.
Herriot will engage in a discussion about the joy and importance of sustainable eating on Saturday, Sept. 7 at 3 p.m. at the Grand Forks and District Public Library.
In her book, The Zero Mile Diet Cookbook and it’s companion book, The Zero-Mile Diet: A Year-Round Guide to Growing Organic Food, there are ideas for indulging in locally sourced, sustainable and healthy meals with family and friends.
They contain creative strategies for organic gardening, seed saving and food security as well as practical advice: tips on preserving food with various storage techniques, instructions for canning, dehydrating, pickling and fermenting, and delectable, straightforward recipes for all seasons.
The Zero-Mile Diet and The Zero-Mile Diet Cookbook are the products of Herriot’s concerted effort over the past 13 years to grow as much of her own food as possible.
Carolyn Herriot’s free presentation is brought to you by the Kootenay Library Federation and The Grand Forks and District Public Library.
