Welcome to the second episode of the Travelogue podcast! Vegan food fairs and local farmers markets are a great way for travelers to learn about the places they visit and enjoy locally grown food. In this episode I’ll talk about the 19th Annual Bordeaux Farmers Rastafari Cultural & Agricultural Vegan Food Fair, and a documentary work-in-porgress. As always, I encourage listeners to send their travel stories to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Vegan and vegetarians sometimes experience frustration when traveling. Restaurants may not have options available, and finding a specialty grocery may be difficult. But visitors to St. Thomas in mid-January can enjoy locally grown produce and vegan dishes from Bordeaux farmers. Each year We Grow Food, Inc., a non-profit organization that promotes the development of agriculture on St. Thomas, organizes the annual vegan food fair to celebrate Rastafarian culture and honor farmers. This year’s Farmer of the Year award went to Nevon DeCastor, “Ras Imani”.
Inside the Core is a documentary film about St. Thomas currently in production. To see the latest posts visit the tumblr page.
