There will be Zucchini races again this year (start planning now!), and a pie baking competition. This year the Garden Club is organizing 11 different competitions, and the annual Adults vs. Kids Soccer game will be on.
The Picnic is a collaborative celebration, and last year over 20 different organizations participated to make it a fun event for everyone. If you’d like to get involved contact us to see where you can help.

I thought I’d use this article to talk about some of the ways to get kids cooking. Kids that learn how to cook, are much more likely to try new foods and be less picky eaters when they’ve made the food themselves. I’m lucky enough to get to cook with the kids at the school on a regular basis – and I have two kids of my own, who also have lots of friends, that like to play in the kitchen – so whether you’ve got your own kids home for the summer, or grandkids visiting – here are some ideas.

Want to learn to grow garlic? The Garlic Co-op is a great way to get started. We're a friendly group who grow organic hard neck, with scapes, at a sunny southend site. Monthly work parties are approximately 1.5 hours. Membership is $30, to cover seed and amendment costs.

Join us on Sunday, June 8th, at 11:30am at the end of Morgan Road, as we get started on our upcoming season. We'll break bread and then break ground on our new bed!

No doubt about it, this past winter was a tough one for many Canadians. And even our mild west coast climate had a few surprises for us. This wet spring has seemed later than usual to arrive, so it may be hard to believe it’s time to start thinking about preparing for next winter. But when it comes to food security, living on an island makes us even more vulnerable than most North Americans. Not only does most of our food come from our centralized food production system, we’re dependent on the ferry service to access it.
