Celebrate local food sources and autumn at Vallican Whole

The Kootenays’ original 100 mile event is back, and now it is a true harvest celebration.

The Kootenays’ original 100 mile event is back, and now it is a true harvest celebration.

On Saturday, the Rural Alternatives Research and Training Society will be holding its semi-annual 100 mile potluck at the Vallican Whole Community Centre. Doors open at 5 p.m., dinner will be served promptly at 6 p.m. Admission is by a potluck dish and a donation.

This event is billed as a celebration of the autumn equinox, which is of course a time of great significance amongst pagans and wiccans, so if you have the urge to release your inner druid and come wondrously attired, so much the better.

Refreshments will be available as well as lively music, so you may even find yourselves partaking in a bit of autumnal carousal.

This dinner, also known as the locavores’ feast, has become a hugely popular community event. Everyone comes with a dish prepared from locally sourced food, and the array and delectability of the fare has become practically legendary. With handmade butter, scrumptious desserts, organic chicken and other meat, glorious preserves, and vegetarian treats galore, this is an opportunity for Valley cooks and gardeners to strut their stuff. As well, it is a great opportunity to spend time with friends and neighbours you just don’t get to hang out with nearly often enough.

The dinner will be the debut event for a number of new Rural Alternatives Research and Training Society board members, so come and meet them — and be prepared to pitch in, reminding them of what a wonderful community they have agreed to serve.

The Vallican Whole Community Centre is at 3762 Little Slocan River Road. For information, check out VallicanWhole.com
