READ MY BOOK #

LOCA L AUT HO RS: Writers tell us what makes their book worth reading

DONNA MILLER

A Family of Our Own: Second book in the Help I’m Naked series A Family of Our Own is my second book, the sequel to Black Fury of the series Help Me I’m Naked. Help Me I’m Naked is a true story about me and my family — mostly the women. It’s an accounting of the domestic turmoil and violence we have suffered and its long-reaching consequences over the generations. It’s a letting go of secrets that have kept us captives of our own psyches; secrets that have made us, the victims, feel guilt and shame; a story about stoic endurance. Help Me I’m Naked is a memoir that speaks of hope and triumph over confusion, loneliness and despair. Read my series and you may spot some of yourself in it or at least gain a better un-

derstanding of “why women put up with it “ and “why abused children don’t speak up” Black Fury won an award in March for best non-fiction at the Great North-West Book Festival. Book 1, Black Fury, and Book 2, A Family of Our Own, are available at Nickles Worth Publishing and at most bookstores. You can also get them at the Pharmasave drugstores in Rosetown and Biggar; at the antique stores in Radisson and Delisle; the Rosetown Co-op; The Store in Perdue and at Fishers Drugstore in Battleford. Black Fury is also available on E-book. Check out Black Fury on Facebook for dates of readings and signings from both of my books. I live just ouside of Asquith.

Creativity behind the scenes at Fashion Week

Saskatoon’s Alicia Soulier, with model Nicole Gardiner Mercereau, is the lead hair stylist on Thursday night at Saskatchewan Fashion Week in Regina. BRIDGES PHOTO BY MICHELLE BERG

By Ashley Martin Six models airbrushed jet black, posed against a black background. Their hair, makeup and wardrobe pop from the foundation, gilded goldenrod. It’s a striking look, and one Saskatoon hair stylist Alicia Soulier dreamt about for years. She wanted to create the effect of a magnet attracting metal objects.

Soulier finally executed the project last February in a 21-hour marathon at Kiriako Iatridis’ photography studio in Regina. The aptly named Black & Gold, for which Soulier won a Mirror Award last month (April 5), is just what Saskatchewan fashion is all about: collaboration from all parts of the province. She employed Iatridis, Edge Agency models from across Sas-

katchewan (including Moose Jaw), fashion designer Laurie Brown and makeup artist Holly Decker, both from Saskatoon, and veteran makeup artist Sara Lindsay from Regina. “I felt like a project of this level, it needed to have the best of the best,” said Soulier. That’s why she called on Lindsay. “She is a master (in the) craft of makeup. She just has the ability to

almost create a masterpiece out of things you would never think,” said Soulier. “She just does it in a different way and it just gives it an aboveand-beyond kind of look.” The team’s assembly was, in part, thanks to the Mirror Awards three years ago, when Soulier, Iatridis, Lindsay and SFW co-founder Chris Pritchard were just four Saskatchewan finalists seated at the same table.

“Most provinces are, like, ‘That’s my competition,’ where we’re like, ‘Let’s network,’” said Soulier. Fashion is thriving in this province; it’s how we can sustain two major fashion festivals, both about to host their third annual events (Saskatchewan Fashion Week is May 8-10 and the Saskatoon Fashion and Design Festival runs May 29-June 1).

It’s taking everyday looks and pushing them to the limits. So that it looks unusual but somehow it still looks beautiful and your eye can’t figure out why. — Lindsay

Past gigs for Saskatchewan Fashion Week’s makeup co-ordinator Sara Lindsay (right) include London Fashion Week and the Juno Awards. She’ll be at Fashion Week in New York this fall. BRIDGES PHOTO BY BRYAN SCHLOSSER

“Our community in general is small but the creative community is really big,” said Lindsay. “Everyone just wants our industry to grow.” “It kind of reminds me of a flower, where we bloom together,” said Soulier, who is returning to SFW this year as Thursday night’s lead hair stylist. “It just feels like we’re really part of a bigger picture by coming together and creating one big show.”

■ ■ ■ ■ It’s ironic. The thing that has defined Sara Lindsay’s career is not something she lets define her. For almost two decades, Lindsay has made a living with makeup — doing personal consultations, selling products, making up brides for their big day and fashion models for photo shoots and runway shows.

Though her work hinges on cosmetic use, she doesn’t push its use — she actually doesn’t wear much herself. “I’m so, so busy, that I don’t spend time on my makeup,” she said with a laugh. She believes makeup is a tool for enhancing natural beauty; it’s something she wants to pass on to her eight-year-old daughter, Ruby. “I don’t want her growing up feel-

ing like that’s something she needs to wear to leave the house,” said Lindsay. “I don’t feel that way, so I hope that leading by example will instil that in her. “She should feel beautiful without it and without being strapped to it. … It should never be something that defines you.” “For her, beauty is more than skin deep. She uses her talent and her gift

to enrich people’s lives,” said Pam Klein, a client of Lindsay’s. Lindsay was named makeup artist of the year at the 2011 national Mirror Awards, and a runner-up in 2012. Her award-winning project was the product of 19 hours of work. She employed the talents of effects artist Emersen Ziffle to create the illusion of a face stretching through skin.

It kind of reminds me of a flower, where we bloom together. It just feels like we’re really part of a bigger picture by coming together and creating one big show. — Alicia Soulier

Alicia Soulier created the concept and won a Mirror Award for Black & Gold. She worked on the project with Sara Lindsay, Laurie Brown and Holly Decker. SUBMITTED PHOTO

Though she was “thrilled” by the win, she doesn’t hold too much stock in the award. “It’s so subjective,” said Lindsay. “There’s hundreds of makeup artists in our industry who could have won it too.” In 2012, Lindsay won the YWCA Women of Distinction award for entrepreneurship and innovation and was nominated for a Mayor’s Arts and Business award. Her past gigs have included the prestigious London Fashion Week and the Juno Awards, and she’s heading to New York this fall to work behind the scenes at Fashion Week. Given all these accolades, it’s interesting to note that Lindsay was no aspiring cosmetician while growing up in south Regina. She was more interested in sports — diving, synchronized swimming and basketball. She was, and still is, “obsessed” with roller skating — “I’m trying to talk my husband into opening a roller rink.” Added Lindsay, “I was never a makeup girl. I thought it was pretty, but I didn’t ever think of it as a career.” Actually, she had no idea what her future would hold. She considered becoming a graphic designer or a hair stylist but wasn’t passionate about either idea. She knew only that her career would have to be creative in some way. She was working as a bartender and server in Calgary when a spa-manager friend hired her as an Aveda adviser. This friend, who was also a makeup artist, asked if Lindsay would learn the basics as a favour. “I started doing makeup and I started loving it,” said Lindsay. “It all kind of happened by accident.” In 2001 she moved to the U.K. and spent eight years learning about the makeup industry, training at four fashion makeup academies (three in London), working at MAC Cosmetics selling and applying product as a regional associate, and freelancing. Through networking, she landed gigs at London Fashion Week and the London Clothes show, working behind the scenes to make up models (Liberty Ross was one) for such designers as Saro and Qasimi. Working in London helped her to discover the artistry of fashion makeup. “It’s taking everyday looks and pushing them to the limits. So that it looks unusual but somehow it still looks beautiful and your eye can’t figure out why,” said Lindsay. “It’s getting away from the traditional and more into the obscure.” “She’s really editorial and high fashion,” said Soulier. “She does very edgy stuff, and it’s hard to do as a makeup artist or a hair stylist. It does take a lot of skill to get there.” Lindsay loves the transformation involved in fashion makeup, pushing the limits. But she loves traditional beauty makeup too. In her day-to-day work with clients, it’s about “creating a look for them that doesn’t cover up or mask them or change them dramatically. It’s just finding beauty in their face and just accentuating that. Just polishing the best version of them.”

She is an artist. It’s a medium of the human body and she really brings out the best in people, — Pam Klein

“She is an artist. It’s a medium of the human body and she really brings out the best in people,” said Klein, who nominated Lindsay for that 2012 YWCA Women of Distinction award. Klein, president of Regina ad agency the Phoenix Group, met Lindsay when the makeup artist offered to support the Power of Pink fundraiser for breast health. “(She’s) always there to contribute and give back,” said Klein. ■ ■ ■ ■ In June 2009, Lindsay and her husband Brad McNaughton moved back to Regina. They wanted to raise their daughter Ruby, then four, in their hometown, where she’d grow up around family. Though it meant sacrificing some career opportunities, Lindsay doesn’t regret the move at all. “It’s six of one, half a dozen of the other,” she said. “For what I left behind, I gained something else.”

Being here allowed Lindsay to realize a dream of opening her own store, something she says would never have happened in London. It took only six months to outgrow her athome setup, then three years to outgrow her small Warehouse District shop, which was open by appointment only. After 1.5 years of searching for a storefront, she lucked out when Crocus & Ivy decided to close its Hill Avenue location, just blocks away from Lindsay’s childhood home. Her new location is a warm and welcoming space that’s at once modern and textured, with sparkly white and grey walls that display artwork of Lindsay’s own makeup designs, white leather furniture, and white countertops on which colourful products are arranged. Music plays throughout the day, whatever strikes her fancy. A lifelong music fan, Lindsay’s tastes range from West Coast jazz to electronica to Bob Dylan. Continued on Page 12

I was never a makeup girl. I thought it was pretty, but I didn’t ever think of it as a career. — Lindsay

Her makeup inspirations are just as diverse: At times, fashion or other art forms spark her designs. Other times, it’s completely spontaneous, “sheer not knowing what the hell you want to do.” Of course that’s not the case during Saskatchewan Fashion Week. Lindsay is in her third year as SFW makeup coordinator and is the key artist for Friday night’s runway shows. The key artist creates a look, which is copied by support artists so each model looks the same. She’s also on the six-artist support team for Thursday and Saturday night’s shows. The 10 designers and retailers showing each night share one group of models. The challenge is to create one look that will compliment everyone, from the sporty 22 Fresh to the elegant Natalia Kulichenko. “We don’t want the makeup to stand out over the hair and the wardrobe,” said Lindsay. It’s also a challenge to create a strong look that stands up to bright lights without the garishness of stage makeup. “A runway look can be pretty clean, modern, sleek and … you don’t want it to look overdone,” said Lindsay. “Fashion week looks are typically really polished but not excessive. There might be an element of drama somewhere on the face but it’s not overdone.” amartin@leaderpost.com Twitter.com/LPAshleyM

Spring style in Saskatoon

Jardeth Hemmerling

By Sean Trembath The sun has finally arrived in Saskatoon. With warmer weather — and less snow — comes lighter styles. We hit the streets to find out what you’re wearing for spring.

Jardeth, from North Battleford, was in town for a Pentecostal Assemblies of Canada conference. He and some friends were relaxing in a nearby coffee shop. He says this outfit is pretty typical of his style. “This is pretty much it. Maybe, if it’s colder, another shirt, or a scarf, something like that.” “I play music and stuff, so you kind of have to dress for that. I like something that’s practical. I’m not going to wear a suit and tie, because it’s not practical for everyday life.”

Emily describes her style as, “badass-sexy, with a little bit of grunge.” She was enjoying a coffee on Broadway a few hours before heading to work. 1.

JACKET: An impulse buy from NastyGal. com. “They sent me an email saying it was $35, usually $80. I used the emergency credit card.”

3.

1.

2. SHIRT: Urban Outfitters. “It was a sweet sale, and I love crop tops.” 3. SHORTS: From Divine. “They were a vintage find.” 4. SHOES: From Winners. “I was looking for something with a cut-out. They’re kind of like sandal-boots.”

JACKET AND SHIRT: H & M. “It’s just a jacket. It’s falling apart on the inside.”

2. PANTS AND BOOTS: Ultimo Euromoda. “My cousin bought them for me. I can’t afford Ultimo clothes.”

Meagan McLean Meagan was enjoying the sun on a bench downtown before heading to work in a few hours. “I’m just kind of putzing around today, enjoying the sunshine. I’m working later tonight, so it’s also, like, I’m ready for work when I need to get there.”

Katherine was on the way to the eye doctor on a day off. She calls her style, “piecing things together, but mostly I just try to be comfortable. Nothing too crazy.”

1.

1. JACKET: The Bay. “I just got it for springtime. I got it for 30 per cent off because the zipper is stuck. I’ve tried it a few times before, but it had to be layered. This has been a good day for it.”

2.

2. SCARF: “My sister got it for me. I have no idea where it’s from. I’m from Edmonton, so it’s from somewhere there. It’s definitely my go-to scarf.”

3.

3. SHIRT: “I don’t remember where I got it from, but this and these black jeans is probably my favourite outfit.”

4.

4. JEANS: The GAP. “They’re really good. I barely have to wash them, and they don’t stretch out or anything.”

Meagan MacLean soaks up the sun in her pretty for spring floral pants.

1. SCARF: Frakas Boutique. “It was a gift from a friend. She used to work at Frakas.” 2. JACKET: From H & M in Edmonton. “It’s kind of a Beatles, Sgt. Pepper throwback. I finally got to bust it out.”

3. PANTS: A cheap, thrift store find. “As soon as the sun is shining I feel like it warrants me being able to wear some loud, bold patterns.” 4. SHOES: Aldo outlet in Edmonton.

SIPS & STYLE

It was a night to get lucky with eats, beats, sips and style at LB Distillers. The micro-distillery hosted an exclusive sampling event on May 2 at their jazzed up warehouse on Ave. B. Fifty guests sampled LB’s cocktails and enjoyed appetizers from Ayden Kitchen & Bar while listening to cool beats from DJ Sting. Models took over the distillery floor and showcased spring styles from two local retailers. The proceeds from ticket sales went towards the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of Canada.

Naturopathic MEDICINE WEEK

19

MAY 12 – 18, 2014

Naturopathic Medicine: a primary health system by Hilary Klassen of SP Creative Features If your child has a sore throat, do you take him or her to a walk-in clinic for conventional medicine, or to a Naturopathic Doctor? What about chronic conditions that are not responding to traditional approaches? Naturopathic Medicine is a distinct primary health care system that blends modern scientific knowledge with traditional and natural forms of healing. The goal of Naturopathic Medicine Week, May 12-18, is to raise awareness of what naturopathic medicine is, what naturopathic doctors do and how it can help individuals and families lead healthier and richer lives. “As a primary health care provider we act as a first point of contact for patients, so patients come to see us like they would go to see their general practitioner,” says Julie Zepp Rutledge. Dr. Zepp is the president of the Saskatchewan Association of Naturopathic Practitioners (SANP), the

body that regulates naturopathic medicine, comparable to the College of Physicians and Surgeons that regulates conventional medicine. “We’re like your family doctor. Come to us with all those same types of concerns and complaints, whether it’s a cold, the flu, a stomach ache or something more chronic, diabetes, MS, cancer, whatever it is,” says Dr. Zepp. “As the primary point of contact into the health care system, we would decide from there, is the condition something that warrants further testing, does it warrant referral to their medical doctor for referral to a specialist, a chiropractor, or a massage therapist?” Naturopathic medicine has grown in Saskatchewan in the past decade from 13 to 35 practitioners. “That’s very significant growth,” says Dr. Zepp. “And now we’ve got better distribution over the province. We used to have the major centres covered and that would be about it, but now we’ve got naturopathic doctors in Moose Jaw, Swift Current, Prince Albert, Humboldt, Estevan,Yorkton, and

Patient benefits from Naturopathic Medicine by Hilary Klassen of SP Creative Features Ask Lorne Warnes where he’d be if he hadn’t received naturopathic medical treatment and he pauses to reflect. Good question, he says. I haven’t really thought about that. Then, “I certainly wouldn’t be doing what I’m doing.” He’s 73 now. “There’s a lot of people my age who aren’t doing near what I’m doing. They’re not as active, not in as good health,” he says. In 2006 he began naturopathic treatment for diabetes, high blood pressure and high cholesterol, conditions diagnosed by a medical doctor in 2000. He read the book “Beat Diabetes Naturally,” which recommended seeing a naturopathic doctor (ND) and he’s been a patient of a Regina ND ever since. Natural healing makes sense to Warnes. He’s come to believe our bodies are quite capable of healing themselves. Through the care of his ND he was able to address his health concerns. “I proved to myself that naturopathic medicine works. If I do what I’m supposed to do, my body is indeed capable of healing most of the problems I have,” he says. He addressed his diet and cut back on sugars. He took medications or supplements that his ND prescribed. She monitors his blood work every three

Melfort, which is really nice.” Naturopathic medicine uses different tools than conventional medicine, that focus more on lifestyle, like healthy nutrition, botanical medicines, supplements, acupuncture, lifestyle counselling, exercise prescriptions, things that are more in line with the philosophy that the body can really heal itself, that we don’t need as many pharmaceutical interventions. “We’re looking to really get to the cause of a condition, as opposed to just treating symptoms,” says Zepp. SANP seeks to work hand-in-hand with conventional medicine. “There are definitely areas, specifically with regards to emergency medicine and procedures, where conventional medicine truly shines,” says Dr. Zepp. During the ten years she’s been practicing in Regina she’s noticed a huge shift toward acceptance by the conventional system for the naturopathic system, and now receives referrals from medical doctors. “There’s a lot more willingness for them to work with us, but there’s still a large number that

aren’t aware of who we are or what we do, and more than that, of the scope of the training that we have.” In fact, current legislation in Saskatchewan limits the practice of naturopathic doctors and Dr. Zepp says the SANP is working to update their legislation so that it reflects the scope of practice they are actually trained to have. Because of the limitations, some residents are forced to travel out of province to receive the naturopathic treatments they need, such as prolotherapy, which could be obtained from practitioners here if legislation was updated, and would help take the burden off conventional health care. The current act dates back to 1978. Doctors of Naturopathic Medicine receive education at a high level. A couple of colleges in Canada offer the training. Dr. Zepp attended the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine in Toronto which offers a four year post graduate program. Prerequisite studies cover courses similar to those of pre-med programs -- things like bio-chemistry, organic chemistry, anatomy, humanities, etc. Students in the post-grad program complete a clinical residency which includes satellite clinics, affording graduates experience with different demographics of the population. Dr. Kent Bailey, ND Naturopathic Doctors are primary care practitioners Naturopathic Doctor and Clinical Hypnotherapist who integrate standard medical diagnostics with a broad range of therapies.

to four months, and tweaks medications accordingly. He took up walking and lost 50 pounds. “I started with my naturopathic doctor and within 15 months of being under her care and guidance I was off all prescription drugs,” says Warnes. He sees this is one of the major benefits of naturopathic medicine. “I don’t believe in prescription drugs unless they’re absolutely necessary. A lot of them have negative side-effects.” When his general practitioner (GP) discounted naturopathic medicine even with evidence of positive results, Warnes found a new doctor who supports it and works with naturopathic medicine. Warnes highly recommends naturopathic medicine. “Whenever I talk to people I tell them of my experience and I promote it because again, I believe

our bodies are capable of doing a lot of healing if we do our part. Naturopathic medicine is part of the medical support that we need and for me it’s a major part.” Although he goes for his annual checkup with his GP, Warnes considers his ND to be his primary caregiver. He has some frustrations with the health care system, not just the undue influence of pharmaceutical companies, but the handling of certain tests and medications, some of which are not permitted under naturopathic medicine or not covered. Since experiencing the care of his ND, Warnes imagines, “as I swing by 100 years of age, I still plan to be golfing.” Time will tell whether he will achieve that goal. “But I’m sure that wouldn’t even be a consideration without her support & guidance,” he says.

The art of compassion

The venerable Losang Samten creates the Mandala of Compassion at the Saskatoon Farmers’ Market. Samten studied to memorize these intricate designs, which he has created for more than 40 years. One by one, grains of sand are placed into 1,000-year-old patterns, emanating the ancient symbol of compassion. The work continues day after day, hour after hour, until it is complete. The mandala will be open to the public, with Losang Samten present, until May 18. BRIDGES PHOTO BY MICHELLE BERG

ASK ELLIE

Be wary after being betrayed by ‘best friend’ Q. I’m 26, female, and completing a professional program. I’ve never dated, waiting for my program to be over before embarking on a serious relationship. I come from a very conservative family. There’s one male co-student whom I thought had potential for a relationship with me. He’s shown interest and has also never been in any relationships (very conservative, too). The spark between us was known and pften discussed among friends. However, I’ve learned that he and one of my closest girlfriends had recently been going for dinners and movies alone (we three used to meet up since we all hung out in university). The girl was already in a relationship with another man (and still is). She’s cheated on many boyfriends in the past. She’s a very pretty girl and acts very innocent. Men always fall for it, which sickens me. When I talked to my guy friend about this, he was stunned and hurt. He said, he was “exploring his options” but had no clue she was in a

Ask Ellie

relationship back then. I’m deeply hurt, feeling betrayed by both. Yet I don’t want to lose some of my closest university friends. I no longer have any feelings for him — I value myself a lot more than that. However, since friends are limited at this point, it’s hard to say goodbye to people with whom you have so many memories. Betrayed A. Your “close” girlfriend betrayed you, the guy less so. She broke several social rules, knowing the spark between you two, and being attached herself. So her private “dates” with this guy were just another ego-boost for her, without caring about you.

If you stay friendly with her for old times’ sake, stay wary as well. Her loyalty gene is weak. As for the guy, you two had no agreement, hadn’t yet dated. Perhaps he felt your devotion to finishing school before dating meant you weren’t all that interested in him. Stay friends with him, and don’t hold yourself aloof if your feelings for him revive.

Q. A woman I work with is constantly complaining. She says she’s depressed. She’s 50, very attractive, divorced, has adult children (the youngest, 19, still lives with her), has siblings, and a mother with whom she’s in contact. Yet all she talks about is whatever non-serious medical issue is her latest “crisis” (e.g. oily skin and hot flashes). I’ve been through menopause myself and know it isn’t always easy to deal with some of the persistent symptoms like night sweats, but I also know many women who try

different remedies like sleeping on towels, alternative treatments, and creams, etc. It’s getting to the point where I practically hide from this woman at work. What do you suggest? Not a Whiner A. Share your information and tips about menopause with her. It’s one of the benefits of sisterhood among women who’ve already experienced this phase which can strike fairly suddenly, with some overwhelming symptoms, swinging emotions, and can also last several years. Show her the more informative sites on the Internet, tell her to ask her doctor about whether she qualifies safely for hormone treatments, and direct her to where alternative remedies are sold (health food stores and through natural medicine practitioners). Tell her she’s sinking into depression and needs to tell this to her doctor, possibly to also see a therapist if she’s having trouble adjusting to aging and its impact on her life. Then you’ll have given her all that

you know that can be helpful.

Q: I’m currently pregnant with my cousin’s best friend’s baby. Nobody knows that we’ve been dating and sleeping together. My family treats him just like family, he’s always invited. He’s 22; I’m 19. He’s not ready for a child and neither am I. But I don’t believe in abortions because I’m the one who laid up and made the baby. How do I tell him I’m pregnant? How do I tell my family? They’re very judgmental. Pregnant and Scared A. You tell him, fast. And then you both tell your parents. You made this baby together. Yes, they’ll be judgmental, which you just have to accept. If you wish to keep this baby, you’ll likely need their help, and if the young man takes responsibility, his family’s help may be needed, too. Only if you fear physical danger to yourself or the fetus, should you instead seek help through a local agency that aids pregnant single women.

SHARP EATS #

S A S K AT C H E WA N F O O D T R E N D S

The five ‘Ws’ about CSAs By Jenn Sharp CSA – what is it? Community-supported (or shared) agriculture is a way to buy food produced by farmers in Saskatchewan while supporting the local economy. Consumers get the benefit of a steady supply of produce throughout the growing season but they also share the risk (when bad weather ruins a crop, there may be little or no produce).

How does it work? Members buy subscriptions at the beginning of the growing season (or sometimes for a full year) for a share of the anticipated harvest. They then receive weekly or bi-weekly boxes of vegetables and fruit. Some CSAs have the option of adding on honey, eggs, meat and dairy products.

Where can you find one? THE GREEN RANCH: www.thegreenranch.ca ■ A local food production and marketing company near Regina. Along with their own all-natural growing operation, owners Tim and Carla Shultz partner with other producers to help them sell their food through CSA shares and an online retail store. ■ Offers meat, egg and vegetable CSAs in Regina and Weyburn. Items ordered through the online store are delivered three times per month to Regina. ETOMAMI ORGANICS ECOFARM: www.saskecofarm.com ■ Located in Hudson Bay, owner Keith Neu delivers his organic produce everywhere from Regina and Fort Qu’Appelle, to Saskatoon and Prince Albert (once a month in the winter, twice a month in the summer). He also offers certified organic beef and poultry, along with honey, perogies and even pickles. ■ A CSA contract runs from May to April. Root vegetables and frozen produce is delivered in the winter. URBANA FARMS: www.urbanafarms.ca ■ Small plot intensive urban farming (SPIN) operation in Saskatoon ■ Offers weekly subscription boxes but sold out for 2014 season. You can still sign up for

(From left) Brenda Selinsky, Leanne Schaeken and Lana Van Dijk pack food bins every Wednesday and Thursday at Body Fuel Organics for delivery to customers. The bins are a great alternative if your summer schedule is too unpredictable to buy shares in a CSA. BRIDGES PHOTO BY BRYAN SCHLOSSER

the Custom Club where available produce is emailed out once a week and can be ordered for pickup or delivery. PAYDIRT FARM HEIRLOOM CSA: www.paydirtfarm.ca ■ Saskatchewan’s only all-heirloom organic CSA operated by Grant Black and Patricia Robertson near Wakaw. Black has four generations of Saskatchewan agrarian roots. His maternal great-grandparents (a professional gardener and a salad maid at Buckingham Palace) immigrated to Western Canada in 1912 to open a market garden. ■ Delivers six times between June and September to a central Saskatoon address. A fullshare is 90+ kg.

When does ordering begin? Every CSA is different but most require a first payment and contract by the end of May (you have until June 6 with PayDirt Farm).

Why would you want to support a CSA? The CSA owners and other farmers/producers are the best equipped to answer the “why support local” question. Here’s a sampling of their answers: VEGETABLE QUALITY AND TASTE Organic heirloom vegetables are softer and taste better than what you’ll find in the grocery

store. Heirloom varieties offer more colours and shapes than uniform hybrids and genealtered vegetables, such as European giant spinach varieties, lemon-shaped cucumbers and black Spanish radishes. Organic heirloom growers like PayDirt Farm use natural growing methods for their CSA: no GMO seeds, no petroleum-based pesticides and no synthetic fertilizers. STEADY SUPPLY FROM A LOCAL SOURCE By joining a CSA, you also build a direct connection to your local vegetable farmer and you support a family business. Our CSA model, for fresh produce distribution to its membership, is six local pickups — mid-June to late September in our growing zone.

SHARP EATS HEALTH BENEFITS Freshly harvested, organic vegetables are rich in vitamins and minerals. For example, organic spinach contains, on average, 119 times more iron than non-organic spinach. This healthy choice means you can avoid 48 pesticide residues found by USDA pesticide data on non-organic spinach. — PayDirt Farm’s Grant Black and Patricia Robertson EDUCATION People understand where their food comes from and that there’s risk involved in growing food. For example, in June 2012, we got hailed out completely. We didn’t have a CSA that year, but if we had, there wouldn’t have been a crop of anything. A true CSA shares that risk between farmer and consumer. LOCAL FOOD BENEFITS A smaller carbon footprint (sourcing food grown close to home), learning to cook and eat what grows well in one’s region using the freshest veggies available in season. VARIETY IS THE SPICE OF LIFE Gaining exposure to a variety of foods that one might not normally put in their shopping cart at the grocery store, like heritage vegetables. I found that being a part of a CSA enticed me to research recipes and cooking practices for different vegetables as I tried to make use of everything in the basket. It added variety to our diet and menus. — Pine View Farms co-owner Melanie Boldt TOMATOES There’s nothing tastier than garden tomatoes. — Urbana Farms owners Will Brooks and Jamie Shebelski

Are there other ways to buy locally grown food? Besides visiting the many farmers’ markets that operate at this time of year, there’s a terrific option for buying organic, local produce in Regina. Body Fuel Organics opened at 1307A Ottawa Street in 2006. Owner Lana Van Dijk made the move to organic food after her son

Keith Neu, owner of Etomami Organics, sells yearly shares in his produce, with the option to add-on meat, honey, perogies and even pickles.

struggled with an illness that had him taking nine antibiotics. With help from a naturopath and dietician, she discovered organic food decreased the toxin load on his body and improved his health. “The nutritional value, in my experience, is much better. I’m better nourished from organic food. … It’s

what grandma’s food tastes like,” she said. Body Fuel is a retail grocery store and offers products from growers in Saskatchewan, along with small farms in British Columbia. A rural delivery service is available to all of Regina and several nearby towns. Pre-selected produce and meat bins,

along with individual items can all be ordered online at www.bodyfuelorganics.ca. If it’s meat you’re after, poultry and livestock from Pine View Farms is raised in a humane, stress-free environment on vegetarian diets and without growth-promoting medication or hormones. It’s sold in stores

GARDENING #

G A R D E N I N G I N S A S K AT C H E WA N

The top five vines and groundcovers for your garden By Erl Svendsen Vines and groundcovers are such versatile plants. Growing on a trellis, vines add height and colour to your garden. Over a steep embankment where mowing grass is near impossible, both cover the ground with green and prevent weed growth. Do you live on an acreage? Groundcovers are useful and economic space fillers. Some vines, like native grape, not only perform all these functions, they also produce fruit for jam, juice or wine. And if mowing grass isn’t your thing, ground covers make a reasonable, low-maintenance and low-input alternative to a traditional lawn. Here are my top five picks for the 2014 growing season. This column is provided courtesy of the Saskatchewan Perennial Society (www.saskperennial.ca; hortscene@yahoo.com).

Riverbank Grape.

Virginia creeper. Golden Hops.

Golden hops (Humulus lupulus ‘Aureus’) Golden hops add a bit of brilliance in the spring to trellises or other vertical surfaces. As a bonus, clusters of yellow hops are produced in the fall. For the adventuresome, try your hand at making beer with them. Flowers: Unimportant Size: Up to 4.5 m long

PHOTO COURTESY ROSEN WEINSBERG

Riverbank grape

PHOTO COURTESY AMANDA COX

(Vitis riparia)

If you have a large rocky slope to cover, riverbank grape will oblige you in spades. Purple fruit makes great jelly or wine. Yum! Flowers: Small, pale yellow, early summer Size: Up to 6 m long

Clematis Nelly Moser.

PHOTO COURTESY LEONORA ENKING

Virginia creeper/Engelmann’s ivy (Parthenocissus quinqeufolia)

These two are nearly identical except Engelmann’s Ivy has tendrils with adhesive tips that allow it to climb and Virginia Creeper does not. Expect excellent fiery red fall colour. Great as a groundcover or to cover a chain link fence, etc. Flowers: Small pale green, insignificant; early to late summer Size: Up to 15.2 m long

PHOTO COURTESY F.D. RICHARDS

False lamium (species).

PHOTO COURTESY DAN MEYERS

Clematis Nelly Moser

False lamium

There are far more clematis in the world than Jackmanii. Nelly Moser is a nice change (as are Joe Zary, Willie and Blue Bird) and is equally dependable. Flowers: 15– 20 cm blooms, light pink with darker lilac stripe down each petal; early summer. Size: 1.8 – 3 m long

False lamium is a variegated (silver and green), vigorous ground cover that grows well in dry shade. Flowers: Creamy to golden yellow in late spring to early summer Size: 30 cm x spreading

(Lamiastrum galeobdolon)

Inexpensive Malbec intense enough for young palates

We have what you need to make

Mom’s Day!

By James Romanow The past few years have seen a rise in the modern version of negotiants. Originally these were French businessmen, wine shippers who bought and blended wine for customers, under a label that, as time went on and the world modernized, became a brand. B&G (Barton & Guestier) is one such firm that most consumers have seen. Once sensible people discover exactly how thin the margins are in wine making they move on. An obvious move is to buy wine in bulk, repackage and ship it. The result is any number of labels like Layer Cake and The Seeker, new style negotiants who seek producers in foreign countries and brand the wine. If you’re a diehard Malbec person you are probably wedded to Argentinian wines. I’m not sure that is the smartest move at the moment as I find them somewhat erratically priced for the quality they offer. However, none of the Malbec fans are going to listen to me. One possibility is to trust a negotiant to choose for you. The Seeker has just entered the market here with an inexpensive Mendoza wine that may suit people looking for a sort of secondary quality control to their tastebuds. It’s a pleasant wine, not terribly intense, with a black cherry palate and a peppery finish. It is probably more than intense enough for

tongues still in their 20s, although I’m not sure it will appeal to folks in their 40s. The palate is dry, probably around five grams sugar per litre, with a dash of Bonardo and Cabernet Sauvignon to provide some structure. If you’re determined to drink only from Argentina, this is a reasonable wine at an inexpensive price. The Seeker Malbec, $15 *** Wine and other beverages in Monday’s paper and on Twitter @drbooze.
