This painting was inspired by Chloe Gow-Jarrett, a Vancouverite who is committed to "doing work that creates value for our world instead of extracts value, and that leaves a healthier planet for the generations to come." Chloe is the founder of Ello Foods, a local and high quality food distributor and refrigeration logistics company.
Our family attends a few programs a year at Hollyhock on Cortez Island. We love the wide open space and how our two children feel free to explore in a way they don’t in the city. This is a picture of Beckett our oldest son confidently wading out to his armpits fully-clothed. His sense of adventure and courage are always very alive when we are on Cortes Island. I leave the island feeling more connected to and in awe of the power of nature. Hollyhock has a bountiful and beautiful garden that inspire me to eat seasonally, locally and well.
One small thing our family does every day to support the environment is to use the water we rinse our vegetables and fruit in, to water our houseplants. The boys love to use the salad spinner to give the veggies a ‘bath’ and then enjoy feeding the plants afterwards. After the dry summer we had, we became acutely aware of how much water we use daily. This practice reminds us to look for instances where we create ‘waste’ that may actually be valuable in another context.
