We never cease to be amazed by all the things our visits to parks and other natural spaces teach us. In Episode 2 of Season 1 of #NaturallySaltSpring, we were blown away at how much we learned about the carbon cycle and sustainable farming from Mike Land at Ruckle Heritage Farm and Provincial Park on Salt Spring Island. For those of you tuning in for the first time, Naturally Salt Spring is the first Season of Naturally Ours, a documentary web series that explores parks and the people they inspire, shot in the beauty of 4K.
In this episode of Naturally Ours, we visit British Columbia’s oldest work farm, Ruckle Heritage Farm, where we are met with beauty of place, love of the residents, and depth of understanding from farmer and caretaker, Mike Lane. Mike’s understanding of ecosystems, carbon cycles, and maintaining a sustainable footprint on Ruckle Heritage Farm far exceeds that of many who study the environmental sciences. Why? Because he is intimately familiar with the land and the animals he works with and cares for everyday. We learned so much from him, in our brief visit.
Stay tuned on Roamancing, as we explore more of Ruckle Heritage Farm and visit the rest of this BC Provincial Park, beyond the farm..
