Lorna and I went to Garlic Festival in mid August.
This is the third garlic festival held at the Terra Nova Sharing Farm, according to Lorna. It’s my first time to this festival.
A reception table welcome visitors to the festival.
We caught a lovely song performed by an artist.
Lush vegetables and flowers in full growth in the summer.
Found the above plant in the garden. Anyone know what is it?
Volunteering in the sharing farm is a very good cause as 90% of the harvest is donated to the community meals and the food bank.
There were various activities going on the farm.
Fresh vegetables on sales.
Plants on sales.
The star of the festival.
A hay station for people to rest and kids to have fun.
The cob oven baked Focaccia was a hit.
Look at the long line for the focaccia.
An artist at work.
There were food carts for the enjoyment of hungry visitors.
Lorna bought an Oroshi japadog (pork Bratwurst and daikon) and a Kurogoma Kimchi japadog (turkey smokie and kimchi) to share with me. Lorna likes the Oroshi japadog more.
There were also workshops being conducted in the festival. The above was a canning workshop.
There were cooking demonstrations in the red barn. We did not stay for any due to the timing was not right. However, Lorna bought a cookbook on sale in the barn.
The Vancouver Cooks 2 is a compilation of recipes by chef’s table society of British Columbia. The soft cover cookbook is $10.
One of the activity for the kids is making garlic crown.
It was nice to meet up with Arzeena, Karen and Alice Wong in the festival.
