Welcome to Galiano Club website. Our current updates are below - please share with your friends! Program and project info is to your left. Contact and administrative info, top-right.

All are welcome to get the gardening year started and share ideas about what to grow together in our community greenhouse. We will have seeds and seed catalogues to browse through. Bring your own seeds and catalogues to swap and share. This group suits all levels of experience and commitment.

Join us at this year’s Seedy Saturday on February 14th from 10:00am-3:00pm at the Farmers’ Institute on Salt Spring. This is a non-profit grassroots event that provides an opportunity for gardeners, seed companies and nurseries to exchange seeds and ideas.

This year, the food program is again organizing travel to Salt Spring to take part in the event. We will boat over from Retreat Cove and then take a taxi to the venue. Total cost for roundtrip transportation and event admission will be about $25. Advance registration is required so that we can organize transportation, so if you’re interested, please contact Emma.
See for more info.

The Galiano Club Community Food Program is offering Food Safe Level 1 on island. The course will take place April 18th at the South Community Hall. The class runs from 9am to 4pm. The cost of the course is $75, which includes the workbook and certificate upon completion.

There are 25 spots available in this on-island class. Contact Alison at: to register.

This is a great opportunity to get your Food Safe certification on island (saving ferry costs.) The Galiano Chamber of Commerce has offered 10 subsidies to any employee of Chamber businesses or island student. The Food Program will subsidize 5 spots for kitchen volunteers.

Foodsafe Level 1 is designed for people working on the front lines of the food service industry, from dishwashers to servers, bussers to line cooks and chefs. The course covers safe food handling, Hygiene, sanitation and work safety. In level 1 you'll learn how to prevent foodborne illness, receive and store food, prepare and serve food safely, and clean and sanitize.

All food vendors at the Galiano Saturday Market are required to have their Food Safe certificates.

Kitchen starts at 10am. If you can come help prepare the soup for lunch and meals for the seniors - that would be appreciated.
RSVP's help me figure out how many people will be in the kitchen.
We are a busy, fun group of people in the kitchen, and always looking for new volunteers.

Soup is sometimes more than soup. It's sustenance, comfort, a lifesaver, and a social glue. The community-building-fundraising movement of the same name in Chicago inspires our “Soup & Bread” Lunch.

On Jan 26th at the South Hall. Lunch will be open to everyone at 12:30pm.
This event is a fundraiser for the Food Program’s Soup for Seniors Project
There is a suggested donation of $5-$10
