About Full Plate

Our goal is to bring awareness to and document the diversity and contribution of our local agriculture expressed through the arts. Throughout 2017 from Yahk to Riondel we helped bring together growers and producers with artists from many media, with the resulting collaboration shared through a variety of media, social media, venues, events and local publications.

A FULL PLATE was the name chosen to acknowledge the bounty and diversity of food culture that we enjoy throughout our region. Bringing the arts and agriculture together is an opportunity to reveal our stories and make new connections especially with the growing interest in food security.
