To all readers in the Vancouver, BC area:
BC Blueberry Council in conjunction with UBC, is having their “First UBC Blueberry Fest” this month. If you love blueberries like I do, you may want to go check out the fest. It should be fun and will be a good way to learn more about BC Blueberries and it’s special place in the BC and Canada's economy.
