How can I make my food supply more local? Why can’t I find seeds for those varieties my grandmother grew in her garden? How do I save seeds from plants that cross-pollinate? What do we need to do to start a seed bank on Galiano?
Join Dan Jason of Salt Spring Seeds and learn how to take part in the age-old practice of seed-saving, and answer these questions and more. Understand the importance of heritage seeds in the modern food system and enjoy a hands-on demonstration of harvesting seeds in preparation for this season, including harvesting, cleaning, storing and labelling.

Dan Jason is the founder of Salt Spring Seeds. An active critic of genetically-modified seeds, patents on living organisms and industrial agriculture in general, he is a dedicated educator on sustainable organic gardening and farming, food politics and seed saving. He is the author of Saving Seeds As If Our Lives Depended On It.

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 galianofoodprograms@gmail.com for more info.

Food Program | Growing Food

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.
Lunch is on April 27 and May 11 & 25 at the South Hall. Lunch will be 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

Cooking for 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 all kinds of jobs that need doing.
RSVP's help me figure out how many people will be in the kitchen.

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: galianofoodprograms@gmail.com 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.
