This Week at HP

The Promised Land Farm

Long before stinging nettles were given “super food” status, Alain from The Promised Land Farm was harvesting these wild plants from local forests around British Columbia. Stinging nettles boast a number of natural health benefits – ask Alain and Bronwyn on Sunday about how to prepare them.

Old Country Frozen Pierogi

Handmade pierogis with unique and delicious flavour combinations, Yvonne has a pierogi for everyone. Vegan, vegetarian, gluten free and meat options are all available – have a sample at the Old Country Pierogi food truck and take a bag home for dinner.
