A group of musicians, farmers, filmmakers, writers and photographers set off on the Sea to Seed Tour, a month-long sailing trip up through the Gulf Islands of the Salish Sea in British Columbia. They are on an experimental mission to collect and share the stories of the farming communities sown along the coast. While exploring the importance of localizing food systems, homesteading, organic farming, community building and permaculture they are also engaging the role that art and culture can play in supporting these ways, evolving educational forums and creating positive change.

Along with telling these stories through their various art forms, they have been hosting music concerts and farm to table feasts as a means of creating connections within and between the communities on the islands and an expansive network of potential allies.

Food, language and music carry the beating heart of culture, they hold the possibility of remembering, of realigning ourselves with the simple values of caring for ourselves, each other and the great wild world. We hope to inspire a collective story telling rooted in the fertile soil of generative celebration that cultivates a real way of living with integrity.

By creating a sailboat tour fed primarily through locally sourced food, the Sea to Seed Tour hopes to embody the very ideals we are promoting and create positive models for the post-petroleum reality we are swiftly heading towards. The aim of this adventure is to explore how art and culture feed into sustainable farming structures around the islands; to investigate the cohesion and synergy to be found in such structures, and how they can inspire a greater shift in our current society both locally and globally.
