About

Welcome, I’m Sabrina Currie!

My Life

I live in beautiful Campbell River, BC on Vancouver Island which is a great place for food growing, foraging and fishing. Here I share my quick, easy and nourishing whole food recipes and what I’ve learned about gardening here in the well watered Canadian West Coast.   My garden has evolved like my recipes; reliable and low maintenance fruits and veggies that grow easily in our climate.

My Why

Coming from a fishing family, having a college background in culinary arts and having two passionate gardeners as grandmothers, it was no brainer to turn my front lawn into a food garden or potager as the French call it. 10 years into growing food instead of lawn, I am more passionate about it than ever.

Ethical Collaborations

My hobbies include foraging (I LOVE mushrooms!), fishing and supporting fresh and sustainably earth grown goods. This has led to some amazing work and collaborations with local and national companies that share the same ethos.  I have been honored to work with farmers, fishers, whole food based companies and makers, photographing, promoting and writing about their work.  I am blessed to be part of the Edible Vancouver Island magazine team and have made many special friendships in this wonderful food community.

As a food blogger, it has been imperative to find ethically sourced, ecofriendly and high quality table settings and textiles.

Reusable, sustainable, earth-centered items that are minimalist, vintage, efficiently designed and made to last a lifetime. You will find linen, cotton, bamboo linens, mason jar tops, vintage finds, Turkish towels and so much more, come check it out!
