1. McClintock's Farm has been part of the Comox Valley's local food economy since Gerry and Val moved to Dove Creek Rd 25 years ago. But the roots are much deeper than that as their daughter Sandra is now a 6th generation farmer in the family. On a sunny day in March Gerry talks to hanspetermeyer about farming as constant change, about how they've moved from hay and cow and calf to berries, and now to water buffalo dairy.

    This is part of a series on Comox Valley Farmers' Market producers.

  5. In December 2010 I visited Jim Palmer in his home close to the Morrison Creek and Puntledge River confluence. Jim has a long history and interest in conservation and stewardship activities. In our conversation he talks about getting involved in stewardship activities in the Morrison Creek watershed, and the significance of the Comox Valley Conservation Strategy for people working on separate watersheds.

    This is one of a series of conversations about conservation in the Comox Valley being sponsored by the Comox Valley Land Trust (CVLandTrust.ca and Facebook.com/CVLandTrust) and the Comox Valley Conservation Strategy (CVConservationStrategy.org and facebook.com/CVConservationStrategy).

    There are many perspectives on conservation and stewardship and how these have an impact on our quality of life here in this region. This series of conversations will help to draw out some of the reasons why people are involved, and how smarter land use planning and development has a positive impact on all of us in the Comox Valley.
