With this first dinner; Forage is launching a series of watershed dining events. A watershed is a collection of land, rivers and tributaries draining into a common source. In most cases on the Pacific Coast, these drain into the mighty Pacific Ocean. Getting to know these special places better helps us protect them. It helps us to know how to plan for a sustainable farming legacy in BC, for now, and for the future. These dinners will bring the best of food & wine from each unique watershed in BC.
