First We Eat joys with Dr. Suzanne Crocker and Family

First We Eat mission: Dr. Suzanne Crocker, Miche Genest, Hector, Cindy, Arno, and two beautiful dogs.

It was beautiful to be back in our historic Dawson City at the place of my wonderful host Dr. Suzanne Crocker and family. I went to support Suzanne’s amazing mission called “First We Eat”, which is based on local farming and eating. She already has completed one year of eating locally. Her work will not only help the farmers of Dawson City, but also the Yukon’s whole agriculture industry!

It was an absolute pleasure for me to train 60 farmers in Dawson City how to dance Bhangra. We we all danced together like a close-knit community of friends.

Dr. Suzanne Crocker is a retired family physician. She and husband, Gerard Parsons (also a retired physician), their three children, two cats and a dog live like a perfect and wonderful family in a beautifully created log home.

Sharing many meaningful conversations on many important topics with Dr. Suzanne Crocker, Dr. Gerard Parsons, writer Miche Genest, Hector, Cindy and Arno, I would say it was an absolute delightful experience to sleep two nights in a home where hand-crafted creativity is visibly seen in the every corner.
