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.

Food Program | Soup for Seniors

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.

Last month, Colleen painted a bucolic picture of life with chickens that had me seriously considering adding a few to my backyard barnyard. Then I remembered why I have ducks.
