At the Wharf with Kimberly Orren
20 Mar, 2019 | 0:30:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Fit to Eat: The NL Farm and Food Show

This time out, we look to the sea for food. I visit with Kimberly Orren of Fishing for Success (and other organizations). We meet up on a wharf in Petty Harbour and chat about giving youth an opportunity to "catch" the passion for fishing, about addressing the gender imbalances in the fishery, about opening up opportunities for self-provisioning with marine...
At the Greenhouse with Knutur
16 Mar, 2019 | 0:30:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Fit to Eat: The NL Farm and Food Show

For this show, we head to Iceland to visit a magical place, but it is almost the very opposite of the representations of magical places on the "Game of Thrones." This is a place of calm, of refuge, of the pungent smell of tomatoes. It is called Friðheimar, and is a greenhouse, restaurant and horse stables. I talk to owner...
At the Gardens with Todd Boland

EN | Ivan Emke | Fit to Eat: The NL Farm and Food Show

Today on Fit to Eat I chat with Todd Boland, author, radio personality and Research Horticulturist at the MUN Botanical Garden -- and a self-confessed gardening aficionado (or "fanatic," depending on your perspective). We talk about the challenges of growing plants in NL, some of the ways to work WITH nature to succeed, and changes that are taking place in...
Sheep Farming in Iceland
28 Feb, 2019 | 0:30:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Fit to Eat: The NL Farm and Food Show

This week on Fit to Eat, we head to an area of the world that has many similarities to our own, but enough differences to make it intriguing - Iceland. I visit with a sheep farmer (and current Vice-Speaker of the Northeast Constituency of the Icelandic Parliament), þórarinn Ingi Pétursson. We talk about the challenges of marketing sheep in a...
A chat with the only commercial cheesemaker in NL
28 Feb, 2019 | 0:30:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Fit to Eat: The NL Farm and Food Show

"Blessed are the Cheese-makers." This week on Fit to Eat, we meet up with the only commercial cheese-maker in NL. Yes. That's right. We're a province of about 530,000, and have only one commercial cheese-maker. But don't let that mislead you about the amount of cheese we actually eat! We just send the excess milk to other provinces and they...
FOR WEEK OF MARCH 11 2019 Lisa Curran and forest collapse in Borneo
20 Feb, 2019 | 0:28:40 |
EN | Frieda Werden | WINGS

Lisa Curran was professor of tropical ecology and director of the Tropical Resources Institute at Yale’s School of Forestry & Environmental Studies when she won a 5-year "Genius Grant." Part of her genius was in studying forests intensely on the ground and also from satellites; part was in developing women scientists for a field dominated by men.
Chatting with Farmer Jim Lester

EN | Ivan Emke | Fit to Eat: The NL Farm and Food Show

Today on Fit to Eat we head toward the outer limits... of St. John's... to visit Jim Lester at his farm, just a turnip's throw from a major freeway. We talk about adversity and opportunity, agri-tourism, working with consumers, aquaponics, and building more food production capacity in this province. Oh, and I ask him how he keeps "Farmer Jim" separate...

"Back to the Land" with Steve and Lisa
22 Jan, 2019 | 0:30:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Fit to Eat: The NL Farm and Food Show

This week on Fit to Eat we go both backwards and forwards in time. We meet a couple of pioneers who have traded the streets of Vancouver (and St. John's) for the homemade and self-provisioned comforts of a homestead. But by taking this choice, which some see as going "backwards," they have actually been going forwards in time - to...
Meeting with Mervin
12 Jan, 2019 | 0:30:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Fit to Eat: The NL Farm and Food Show

This week I visit with Mervin Wiseman, a certified master mariner, a policy lover, a long-time executive member of the NL Federation of Agriculture, and the operator of the largest silver fox farm in the known universe. Or something like that. But we don't really get around to talking about fur very much. We spend too much time chatting about...

Over 60 years ago, the Commission of Government opened up over 12,000 hectares of land for agriculture in the Cormack area of NL.

EN | Ivan Emke | Fit to Eat: The NL Farm and Food Show

This week we head to the magical village of Ferryland to visit with a couple of folks who grow garlic. A lot of garlic. Vampires beware! They also grow a few other vegetables, and they produce a traditional soil nutrition supplement. We spend the day with Brian and Jane Yager of the Natural Gardener, and we welcome you to join...

19 Dec, 2018 | 0:30:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Fit to Eat: The NL Farm and Food Show

This week on Fit to Eat we visit a man who is fascinated by the little creatures who are responsible for about a third of what we eat - bees, and other pollinators. We chat with Paul Dinn of Adelaide's Honey about his passion for bees and how he is helping to spread that enthusiasm around to others.

EN | Ivan Emke | Fit to Eat: The NL Farm and Food Show

This week we go deep into Quidi Vidi Village to chat with Todd Perrin, chef at Mallard Cottage, food entrepreneur and keen observer of all things related to food and culture. We chat about getting back to more self-provisioning in this province, the challenges of increasing local food at restaurants, the rise of food porn, and the fact that eating...

EN | Ivan Emke | Fit to Eat: The NL Farm and Food Show

This week we head to the world headquarters of the Newfoundland Cider Company, in Clarenville, to speak with Chris Adams. We learn about the patience needed to start an agricultural enterprise in our province, as well as the excitement of consumers to buy local foods - and drinks. In the process, we learn a few things about cider as well.

Today, I visit with Jim Purdy, just outside of Happy Valley, Labrador. We talk about the advantages of farming in Labrador, the demand for local vegetables in the region, the need to increase animal-based farming in that area, and the great bear-frightening potential of a good rooster.

13 Jan, 2018 | 0:47:42 |
EN | Bojan Furst | Rural Routes

While the numbers of farms in North America are decreasing every year, virtual farms are thriving. What does the bounty of farming related computer, video and mobile games say about the urban-rural divide? Are they just dumb time wasters, or could they actually be used to help create both knowledge and understanding? Join us for a (slightly goofy) chat about...
