Naomi Tabata is with North Island College’s Centre for Applied Research, Technology, and Innovation (CARTI). In September CARTI is launching a research project that will help NIC connect with business innovators in the region. She needs your help - and she wants to give away a pair of tickets to the sold out Flavour Gourmet Picnic event. To enter to win she’s asking North Island businesses to take a short 5 minute survey (link to be posted in early September - closing date midnight September 15).
FMI about CARTI see hpm.li/VVtWPI or follow them on Twitter @NIC_CARTI.
Why Am I So Keen?
CARTI is a client, so I’m doing my part to get the word out with content and survey strategy (that’s some of what I do at hanspetermeyer.ca). But there’s more to it. I genially work with clients I think are “good things” for my community or region. I think CARTI is one of those.
If this clicks for you, or if you want to see business innovation and economic development on the North Island, please share this post with business owners and managers in the greater North Vancouver Island region.
Does Your Business Telling it’s Story? I can help.

Tips on how to help grow your #localfood economy
Tips on how to help grow your local food economy:
- Move $10 of your weekly grocery budget from non-local to local farmers’ produce
- Make a pic of your produce, post it online, and tag it #localfood so others know what you’ve done
- Make something really tasty to eat with your produce and share it with family and friends.

It’s harvest season and there’s lots happening at the Comox Valley Farmers’ Market.
Vickey Brown is the market’s Executive Director and she gives us an update, including days, times for the market, special events, and when the market moves indoors. And, she tells us about something new at the market - the market newsletter.
My converstation with Vickey is part of a series of interviews and updates with Comox Valley Farmers’ Market producers and staff, sponsored by hanspetermeyer.ca / EatDrinkMEDIA.ca.

I create content about local food (and wine!) on Vancouver Island. Telling the story of local food is one of the ways to support the men and women and organizations that are making our Island a “good food, local food” region.
