The Galiano Community School & Activity Centre Sep 13, 2015 12-4pm rain or shine

Come join your neighbours, bring a friend, meet someone new. Share a favourite dish, stories, games and live music. Last year was a blast! Celebrate the end of a great summer. Everyone, young and old, is welcome. Bring your best pie to the contest table and let’s see who bakes Galiano’s Best Pie of 2015!

Zucchini races!
Two categories: kids and adults. Each category is divided into two vehicle types: Integral (i.e. the vehicle would collapse if the zucchini was removed) and modified. There is also an award for the most creative vehicle design. Vehicles can be no more than 13” wide, and to win a prize, all the power must be supplied by the incline ramp. However, in the words of the judges:
“No zucchini, no matter how outrageous, will be refused!”

Please remember to bring and wash your own dishes, cutlery and cup.

Come join us for a fun afternoon of pickling. We’ll be putting up whatever’s ready – probably beans and beets. Sunday August 23rd at 1pm at the South Community Hall. Beginners and experienced picklers are welcome. Kitchen has sliding scale of $10-$20. Please bring at least 4 500ml canning jars. Please RSVP to attend this class

Galiano summers yield an amazing variety of tree fruits and berries, available from our farmers, through our Gleaning program and in your own backyard. Making jam is a great way to capture the taste of summer in a jar to brighten up those dark winter days.

Making jam can be daunting if you’ve never tried it. But there are different methods, and some are very easy. In this class we will be using commercial pectin and the only skills needed are the ability to measure a few cups of fruit, and the ability to time a boil—skills everyone has. That’s it. No thermometers, no wrinkle tests. Using some commercial pectins also gives you the freedom to use honey or skip the sugar all together—things not possible with traditional long boil jams.

Class costs $15 sliding scale. Register at

Cooking for the frozen meals and the days lunch starts at 10am.
Help to prepare the soup for lunch and meals for the seniors is always appreciated. We always need new volunteers and there are many different kinds of jobs that need doing; from chopping vegetables, and washing dishes, to setting the tables and adding labels to packaging.
RSVP's help me figure out how many people will be in the kitchen.

Soup is sometimes more than soup. It's sustenance, comfort, a lifesaver, and a social glue.
The “Soup & Bread” lunch at the South Hall is open to everyone from 12:30pm till 1:30pm.
This event is a fundraiser for the Food Program’s Soup for Seniors Project
There is a suggested donation of $5-$10

We are going to be making Camembert and Dream Cheese in oil.
Check out both recipes on David's web site:

You must RSVP if you want to come. I must limit the class size.
Class is $15-$20 sliding scale.

Please note there is no camping in the Bluffs, on Mt Galiano and in the Heritage Forest. Also, please be aware that the Gulf Islands are at an extreme fire hazard level and do not drop cigarettes anywhere. Thank you for your attention to these matters. The Board of the Galiano Club.

The Garlic Co-op is a group of garlic enthusiasts who collectively grow a few varieties of organic premium garlic, with scapes, in a large, shared, sunny plot at the end of Morgan Road, at the south end of the island. Together we learn about this easy-to-grow, hardy crop, share the load of bed-preparation, seeding, weeding, mulching and harvesting, and enjoy some delicious garlic. We also explore various soil-building and composting techniques. Everyone is welcome, and no previous experience is required to join. If you're interested, come on out to a work party. Email for more info.
