The Annual Kid's Candlelight lantern parade (led by our very own Jack Garton) marks the beginning of the Solstice Potluck. There will be a lantern making workshop on Sunday December 6th and 13th at the Activity Centre from 11am to 12:30pm, for all kids that haven't made their lanterns yet.

Please bring a large glass jar (1L canning jar is perfect). There is no charge for the workshop.

Food Program | Seasonal Gleaning

At this time of year it can seem as if there is bounty everywhere you turn. Gardens are bursting with fresh vegetables, neighbours are hiding zucchini in your car, and there are ripe blackberries around every corner.
Galiano is also lucky to have some orchards, including some with heirloom varieties that are hard to find in commercial cultivation. In addition, many of our residential plots have a well- established fruit tree or two.

Be sure to save December 21st for the Annual Winter Solstice Pot Luck Dinner.

The doors will open at 5:00 with the Children's Lantern Parade leaving GIRR at 5:30. Dinner will start at 6:00 with entertainment after.
The bonfire will be started at 4:30, and there will also be soup available outside, for those that want to enjoy the fire (and not face the crowds!)
This is a wonderful winter season event you won't want to miss. If you would like to volunteer (there are lots of opportunities for this) contact us at galianofoodprograms@gmail.com

In the words of one student: “Applefest is the best day EVER!” This year’s fun-filled, educational event will be held Wednesday, October 22nd, from 1-3pm at the Galiano Community School.
We are looking for donations of apple varieties for tastings. If you can spare a few apples for some tastings, or are able to volunteer your time to help us set up and run the activity stations, please contact Colleen at galianofoodprograms@gmail.com.
Thank you and we hope you can help support this special event for the kids.
