O.U.R. Ecovillage sets the scene for this year’s Feast of Fields

Tickets now on sale for 18th annual Vancouver Island Feast of Fields, Sept 20

Feast of Fields, FarmFolk CityFolk’s annual fundraiser and local food celebration is a unique event that brings gourmet food and beverage tasting to its roots – the farm! FarmFolk CityFolk is excited to host this year’s fundraiser at O.U.R. Ecovillage, a 25 acre education and demonstration site in Shawnigan Lake that reflects a model of sustainable agriculture that supports food diversity. The village is built on permaculture principals of land use and creates a splendid interconnection between land, food and human consumption.

At the 18th annual Vancouver Island Feast of Fields on Sept 20, guests can experience the diversity that flourishes at O.U.R. Ecovillage. Productivity thrives in raised beds, greenhouses and food forests and grows among a network of cob buildings and structures. In and around these unique places, the islands’ best restaurants, eateries, wineries and breweries, will tantalize the tastebuds of Feast guests with their finest local creations. It is a cornucopia of food culture that shouldn’t be missed.

Tickets to Feast of Fields must be purchased in advance. To purchase online, go to the Feasts of Fields new site. You can also purchase tickets at two locations: Cook Culture in Victoria or Cure Meats in Cobble Hill. Tickets are $95/adult or $15/youth (under 5 is free). Buy before June 15, and save $10 off of every adult ticket purchased.

The Feast Bus will once again be offering guests return trips from Victoria as well as from the Cowichan Valley. The Feast Bus is a great way to get to and from the event safely and easily, however if you choose to drive to the event, paid parking will be available onsite for $5/car.

O.U.R. Ecovillage runs educational programming throughout the year and as such, accommodation is available on site for anyone wishing to create a weekend out of their Feast of Fields adventure. To learn about the various options contact O.U.R Ecovillage directly.
