Foodie Dirt & Dear Dirtary

diana22

Dear Foodie Dirt: bah, organic-schmorganic, if I want to eat running shoe material in my bread, that’s my business. Dear Schmorganic: Yes, it is your choice. When you know what you are getting and you still make that choice, it is yours. Labelling will allow you to choose to eat more running shoe material. Right now, you don’t know. Sincerely Yours, Foodie Dirt.

Foodie Dirt – The Play – Our food chain is undergoing mass industrialization. If you get brave, and look closely, you may wonder if it’s time to slow things down. Whether you know it or not, you have already played a starring role.

Act 1 – Organics – A Recipe for Backyard Dirtaster – Get some backyard dirt. Add compost. Add healthy seeds. Add water. Add sunshine. Let the pollinator bees do their thing. Let nature bake until ready. Yield: Food.

Since your body likes sparklingly-live enzymes and it is how nature rolls, dive in. In fact, insist on it: Ask all your favourite grocers to bring in what’s local: that includes your local rancher’s stuff too.

Act 2 – GMOs: Ambitious Understudy at Stage Right* – GMOs* are in the foods we are buying now. Since the science has not yet proven there is no health risk, nor have we been given labeling, ask your favourite boxed package food suppliers to list ingredients that contain GMOs*. Just ask them, email them, phone them, send a letter, tweet them, facebook them. Let them know you want labelling now. Every package has a contact on it.

Our good grocers work hard for us every day – Ask your favourite grocer how YOU can help them get us some labelling. Let’s work together until labelling comes into law.

*GMOs: genetically modified organisms. [You can’t rinse or sift this stuff out]

Act 3 – Your Starring Role – Enjoy cooking, and laughing and living every day using healthy plants and animals that nourish you and yours. And they all lived happily ever after.

The End.

Diana Anderson, Okanagan Falls, in well-intended, hot pursuit of contributing to raising an existing, positive, profile of Okanagan Falls; passionate about the area’s historical and continued growing role in stewarding healthy, high quality, fresh foods, grass-fed cattle, farm fresh eggs, artisanal cheeses, honey, bee pollinators, you name it.

Closer ~ fire (80 hectares in size)

burns22

Crews are working hard to try and contain a wildfire burning between Oliver and Osoyoos on the east side of the valley.

Kayla Pepper, fire information officer with the Kamloops Fire Centre, says that the blaze started on Friday and has continued to grow in size. Sunday they have 25 fire fighters on the scene as well as two helicopters and fire investigators.

“Crews are focusing on putting in a guard on the southwest side of the fire. The East side of the fire has fewer values so they’re really focusing their efforts around some power lines on the southwest side.”

She adds they are also attempting to steer the fire towards some rocky areas that will act as natural guards on the east side.

Pepper says there are two investigators out there today trying to determine the cause of the blaze, but the belief is that it was human caused.

Strong winds Saturday paired with dry forest fuel in the area caused the fire to continue to spread.

Thanks to Roger Richardson for fine photographs sent to Oliver Daily News
