Dawson City is Suzanne’s home base. This unique community of 1500 people is nestled in the confluence of the Yukon River and the Klondike River and is literally at the end of the road. At 64 degrees north, Dawson is 300 km south of the Arctic Circle and 100 km from the Alaskan border. Dawson City has a rich culture and heritage. It has long been the home to the Tr’ondëk Hwëch’in First Nation, was the centre of the Klondike Gold Rush in 1898 and more recently has become home to folks from all over the world. Dawson City and its outlying communities have many individuals interested in healthier living and food security. The Klondike area is fortunate to have several farmers and food producers, many living off-grid, as well as the Tr’ondëk Hwëch’in Teaching and Working Farm. This page will continue to grow as Suzanne gathers more knowledge about eating locally in and around Dawson City.
