Valuing Community above Consumption
Clean (produced using alternative energy sources)
Diverse (spices from around the world provide cultural and sensory diversity)
Efficient (minimizing waste and conserving energy in the production, transport or use)
Recycled (the shelves and counters are made from compressed wheat shaft)
Social (building community – e.g. crafts from developing countries)
Timeless (craftsmanship and beauty that will stand the test of time)
Trevor also belongs to the Green Collective, a group of environmentally-friendly local businesses, and he coordinates a monthly educational series for consumers – Table Talk.
Visit Plenty if you have a curious mind, if you respect creativity, if you value community above consumption, or if you believe that food is art and art is food. And be sure to tell Trevor if you’re from Saskatchewan. His grandparents farmed near Plenty, and he went to high school in Saskatoon, and I think he’s just a little bit homesick for the Prairies.
Plenty is located at 1034 Fort Street, and it’s wonderful. My thanks to Trevor for welcoming me to his store and for sharing his story.
