Film Night!

Seed, the Untold Story
Thursday May 4th, 7pm
Join us for the screening of Seed: The Untold Story, followed by a discussion facilitated by the Seed Library of Galiano. Doors open at the South Hall at 6:30pm, with organic popcorn and beverages included all for $5/per person. Theater Bytes refers to this film as: "A brilliantly filmed, scripted, and directed documentary that we all should probably view. The frank testimonial approach used in this film tells a very compelling story…”


"Heroes" - The Play

"Heroes" will be presented Easter Sunday April 16th at the South Hall at 5:00 p.m. Come and enjoy this comedy set in 1959 in a French retirement home for First World War veterans. The original production opened at London's Wyndham's Theatre on 18 October 2005 and closed on 14 January 2006. It starred Richard Griffiths, John Hurt and Ken Stott.



Bees and Seeds Day: Saturday - January 28th, 10am-1pm

Beginning at 10am at the South Hall, the Seed Library of Galiano will have its inventory on hand for those interested in browsing and borrowing seeds for the upcoming growing season. Yes, the time for spring starts is just around the corner! There will also be some seeds available for free, and those who wish to swap seeds with others are welcome to bring them along for a mini Seedy Day. Please contact Colleen with any questions.


Growing Citrus & Subtropicals

Saturday, January 21 1:00-3:00 at the South Hall. Please RSVP to register. $15-$25 sliding scale.

Did you know that you can grow citrus on Galiano, without a greenhouse or any special equipment? Our increasingly mild winters mean that the list of Mediterranean plants that can survive our winters is growing.


Ninth Annual Solstice Potluck

by Alison Colwell

In the middle of winter, when the nights are long, and the days are grey and short, we hold a special celebration on Galiano. This year will be the ninth annual Solstice Potluck. It’s a time to celebrate community and the warmth of togetherness on the darkest night of the year, keeping in mind that at this point darkness gives way and changes back towards the light.
