Golden Harvest at ACT in Maple Ridge

First Golden Harvest was seven years ago.

The Maple Ridge Agricultural Advisory Committee presents “Golden Harvest – A Taste of Maple Ridge and Beyond.'

Maple Ridge is celebrating agriculture and local food with “Golden Harvest – A Taste of Maple Ridge and Beyond,” Oct. 14.

The first Golden Harvest was seven years ago, when the Maple Ridge Agricultural Advisory Committee partnered with the Haney Farmers Market.

Since then, the event has become a popular event for local food enthusiasts to connect with local farmers and food producers and some of the culinary talent in the community.

This year’s event will again be held at the ACT, 6-8 p.m. It pairs local producers of agricultural products such as berries, vegetables, meats and cheeses with the culinary talents of local restaurants.

“These professionals create hot and cold appetizers that reflect the offerings of their restaurant and the bounty of our community,” said Golden Harvest coordinator is Genevieve Beaupre.

Culinary arts programs from local high schools and college programs will be cooking tasty bites to kick off fall programs.

“It’s a great way for students to learn and connect with their community.”

The event will also feature several workshops on food related activities, such as seed saving, juicing, food waste and preserves.

• Tickets for the event are $30 for adults, $20 for youth and seniors and can be purchased at the Haney Farmers Market or from the ACT box office.
