Philosophy down on the farm
20 Jun, 2019 | 0:30:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Fit to Eat: The NL Farm and Food Show

This week on "Fit to Eat" we talk about... well, there's no easy way to put this... we talk about philosophy. Farming and philosophy. Berry growing and philosophy. And how the thing that seems, to many people, so scary (philosophy)is actually something that is pretty front-and-centre to many farmers. Or should be. I drop by the new farm market of...

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

What were these things called the "good old days?" Did they exist, or are they more advertising than reality? This week on "Fit to Eat" we talk to Charlie Dunn - fisher, gardener, tourism operator, carpenter, story-teller.

This week we visit gardener, teacher, musician, writer, organizer, animator and self-professed seed geek Dan Rubin. He talks about adapting to NL gardening conditions, after moving from Canada's west coast, where you simply plant seeds and run. But the conditions here have made him a better gardener. Honest. We also chat about the role of seed collecting in ensuring food...

Connections between horticulture and agriculture
05 May, 2019 | 0:30:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Fit to Eat: The NL Farm and Food Show

This time on "Fit to Eat" we dance around the question of whether horticulture and agriculture are the very same thing... or maybe they were separated at birth? What is their connection, in our province? How is the increased interest in food security among consumers being felt in the horticultural industry? And what can the two sectors learn from each...

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.

I talk to Chair of the Co-op Board that operates the market, Joshua Smee, Deputy Mayor of...
Plant-Based Meat
22 Apr, 2019 | 0:30:00 |
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...

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.

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.

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...

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...
