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.

If you've been to one of David's Cheese workshops - and left inspired - but then been unsure where to start - then this club is for you.
We're going to start an informal group to share experiences, equipment, make some easy cheese together and inspire each other to be bold and make new cheese!

We'll be experimenting with yogurt cheese on Thursday night. And then decide what we want to try next.
