TCFI thanks gardeners for luscious hospitality

The Tofino Community Food Initiative owes a huge thanks to local food gardeners who received almost 30 visitors this weekend as part of the TCFI’s Fifth Almost-Annual Tofino Food Garden Tour. Thank you to gardeners Gil and Hilda Sadler, April and Jeremy Robson, Sandi Rideout and Margaret Eady, Sarah and John Platenius, Michelle Hall and Jim Greene. Your gardens are an inspiration and you help us bust the myth that we can’t grow food in Tofino! TCFI also thanks the District of Tofino for renting us their passenger van, Cheryl Graham for driving the van, and Tofino’s Community Gardeners and Tofino Botanical Gardens for a wonderful finale of iced tea and cookies.
