How a Farmer's Market Nurtures Community
23 Apr, 2019 | 0:30:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Fit to Eat: The NL Farm and Food Show

On this episode, we explore the close relationship between food and community, and how they often rely upon the contributions of the other. We use the example of the St. John's Farmer's Market as an illustration of how this relationship works its magic. I talk to Chair of the Co-op Board that operates the market, Joshua Smee, Deputy Mayor of...
Plant-Based Meat

EN | Lawson Hunter | EarthMatters

Growing crops to feed farm animals is vastly inefficient, driving up the price of grains and legumes, and entrenching global poverty. The challenge to produce enough food for 9 billion people by 2050, requires a more efficient system and less food waste. The Good Food Institute works with scientists, investors, and entrepreneurs to discover improved methods and use all the...

Building Inclusive Communities - One Bike at a Time
11 Apr, 2019 | 0:30:01 |
EN | Lawson Hunter | EarthMatters

Community bike shops are run on a mandate to eliminate barriers to cycling by teaching people how to repair and maintain bikes (and offering the tools and space to do so), and providing safe, affordable bikes to those who might otherwise be priced out of the market. Whether running hands-on programs in neighbourhood schools, or just through day-to-day shop activity,...
Agritourism in the Dairy industry in Iceland
09 Apr, 2019 | 0:30:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Fit to Eat: The NL Farm and Food Show

This week we visit two agri-tourism operations in Iceland. Both of them are dairies that also have rooms for farm vacation stays, as well as restaurants. And the beauty is that you can eat your lunch, or lick your ice cream cone, while you watch the cattle being milked! We feature Vogafjós and Efstidalur, speaking with Olof Hallgrimsdottir and Solvi...

02 Apr, 2019 | 0:30:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Fit to Eat: The NL Farm and Food Show

This week on "Fit to Eat" we chat with James Grace, gardener extraordinaire, chef of note, teacher, and deep thinker on all things related to rural Newfoundland and Labrador. I ask him about where he thinks we are heading as a province, and he explains why "spite" is such a fine source of inspiration for growing food. And all from...
A Vision for a Circular Economy for Plastics
31 Mar, 2019 | 0:30:00 |
EN | Lawson Hunter | EarthMatters

The use of plastics today is a highly wasteful, linear, take-make-waste model that is harmful to the environment and misses economic opportunities as value is literally thrown away. This linear economy for plastics requires energy and generates emissions for each production cycle that would largely be avoided, were plastic otherwise reused or effectively recycled. In a report to the Smart...

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...

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...

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...

EN | Lawson Hunter | EarthMatters

Gil Penalosa, Founder and Chair of 880 Cities, has traveled to more than 350 communities around the world looking for the best ideas to improve life for people of all ages. He believes the measure of a good place is whether we'd feel comfortable with an 8-year-old biking alone to the neighborhood park or someone in their 80s walking to...
A look at rural media.
30 Jan, 2019 | 0:42:07 |
EN | Bojan Furst | Rural Routes

Media industry is in trouble. For a long time now it has been shedding jobs and converging into ever larger corporate entities where profits outweigh any residual sense of responsibility to small communities for whom a local paper is often a necessity. Are there solutions? In this episode we will bring you interviews with journalists working a community owned paper...
"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...
