B.C. couple nears full year without buying food

On Aug. 3 it will officially have been one year since a Pender Island couple committed to only eating what they can grow, harvest, raise or catch themselves.

Do you grow or raise any of your food ?

Do you grow or raise any of your food ?

They learned to raise chickens, turkeys, ducks and pigs and then, with difficulty, how to butcher them too. They raised bees, foraged for mushrooms and berries, and discovered native plants they could eat, like hostas and stinging nettle. Salt came from sea water, iodine from seaweed, and sweetener from stevia plants. If given the opportunity, do you think you could go a full year without buying any food and only relying on what you raises/foraged/grew?

They said their biggest takeaway has been seeing firsthand how much waste comes from food packaging. At the three-month mark they were shocked to see they had only produced two small bags of garbage, the same amount they previously would have made in one week. Does the amount of packaging and plastic in food/groceries worry you?

The first three weeks were the hardest, they said. Cutting out coffee, alcohol, sugar and wheat all at once was a shock to their systems. Which would be the hardest for you to cut out for a year?
