John, local farmer, and chef Bruce Wood, of Bruce’s Kitchen, shared a passion for healthy local food systems, and both worked hard to promote community through food.
At John’s memorial, Bruce announced a scholarship for a Gulf Islands Secondary School graduate. The scholarship is for a student who has been pursuing culinary arts, and has an understanding and appreciation for the value and importance of a local food system. The successful candidate will have written a 1000 word essay on the relationship between the culinary arts and farming/horticulture, exploring the linkages of the farm to table philosophy.
Fundraising for this scholarship fund continues, and all donations are greatly appreciated, no matter how small. Donations can be made through Duck Creek Farm, or GISS.
