Ernest Hemmingway said anyone lucky enough to have lived in Paris in their youth would carry that experience for the rest of their lives. He called the city A Moveable Feast.

Daybreak contributor Gillianne Richards is a writer and artist who grew up in the Okanagan. She claims the visionaries, artists and culture of Hemingway's Paris are no greater than the treasures found in her own backyard.

In her new series, Moveable Feast, Gillianne uses the Okanagan as a backdrop to dive into the culture and people that makes this region rich.

In the first episode she explores a Japanese-Canadian oasis in the heart of Kelowna, the Kasugai Gardens are celebrating their 25th year.
