In these beautiful summer days, Deborah Hodge is thinking about the farmers who grow our food.
Specifically, she’s thinking of the farmers at Glen Valley Organic Farm Cooperative in Abbotsford, BC. They are the folks she visited multiple times over the course of a year to write her newest book: Up We Grow! A Year in the Life of a Small, Local Farm.
If you’re interested in hearing about how the book was written and seeing its beautiful photos (shot by Brian Harris), you might consider coming to the book launch at the Trout Lake Farmer’s Market on August 7th at 10:30 am. Deborah and Brian will be there for the entire market to chat and sign books.
If you can’t make it to Trout Lake, head to Kidsbooks on West Broadway on August 26th for another launch. The time is 7-9 pm and, besides a book talk, there will be local food and drink.
If you can’t make it to either launch and you’d like a copy of Up We Grow, ask for it at your local bookstore or check for it online.
