Food Program

Greenhouse Group

We have begun the Spring Program in the community greenhouse. We meet weekly, Tuesdays at 11 am, and Thursdays at 5 pm. We will start each session with a brief Seed Swap and then start our potting mixes. The group will still need to decide what they would like to grow for their own gardens and for the beds in the Greenhouse. Contact Barry anytime at galianofoodprograms@gmail.com
Everyone welcome!

Galiano Island’s 9th Annual Nettlefest

Are you interested in eating more local food and cooking with wild ingredients? Come spring, stinging nettles are among the first edible plants to burst from the ground in the Gulf Islands. In an intimate setting just an hour’s ferry ride from the Lower Mainland, join us for a fun celebration of local wild abundance on beautiful Galiano Island April 15th-17th, 2016, and learn all about nettles—their health and nutritional properties, how to harvest them, and how to cook them.

Cooking for the day's lunch starts at 9:30am and help is always appreciated. We always need new volunteers and there are many kinds of jobs that need doing.
(But if you can't come till noon - you are still welcome - we always need help with packaging and dishes too!)
We'll be preparing the soup for lunch plus soup for the kids at the school, plus making frozen meals for the seniors - there's always lots to do!
