Program Title: Fit to Eat: the NL Farm and Food Show, episode 41
Description: This week on "Fit to Eat" we discuss some of the changes in traditional foodways in NL, a few innovative government strategies of the past to promote local and wild foods, and the promise of backyard gardens. I talk to Greg Wood of Bonne Bay about growing up eating lasagna and asparagus and turr and trout, and the work of his mother, Jocelyn Wood, who wrote the book "Native Cookery and Edible Wild Plants of NL" and who taught folks across the province about wild foods and planting gardens. Decades ago. I also talk with Mervyn Dean of Corner Brook and do a tour of his garden, illustrating how a generally-benign lawn can be put to great use, with some imagination and work.
