Who is the Wheely Slow Cooking Tour? We recently had the privilege of meeting Julia and Shera, the gals that make up this musical duo, and even heard a couple of their tunes live! This past summer, these ladies embarked on a unique journey in which they performed their music on sustainable farms across Canada and cooked loving meals for their hosts! Not only did they establish meaningful relationships with the communities where they played, but also gained a deeper appreciation for sustainable living and our sacred connection to land and food. We are very grateful to have Julia and Shera join our community as we celebrate the harvest season!
