The Galiano Club's 92nd Annual General Meeting - May 28th 2:00 p.m. South Hall

On Sunday the 28th the Galiano Club will hold its 92nd Annual General Meeting and Open House. In addition to a concise business meeting there will be an entertaining talk by Steve Nemtin on Galiano's latest Heritage Designated Site - the Japanese Charcoal Pit Kiln located in the Bluffs. At the conclusion of the meeting will be the Galiano Club's famous complimentary ice cream sundaes with blackberry, butterscotch or chocolate sauces. Everyone is welcome!



10th Annual Nettlefest

As I write this article we are just emerging from an unusually snowy winter, and it’s hard to believe that spring is just around the corner. But it’s coming. One of the first signs of spring, and maybe Galiano’s favourite, is bright green nettle shoots poking out of the ground. The new leaves are full of calcium, protein, and iron. Perfect to recharge us after our cold winter and get us healthy and ready for spring.

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.


Garlic co-op

Do you like garlic? The Garlic Co-op is a group of garlic enthusiasts who collectively grow a few varieties of organic premium garlic, with scapes, in a large, shared, sunny plot at the south end of the island. Together we learn about this easy-to-grow, hardy crop, share the load of bed-preparation, seeding, weeding, mulching and harvesting, and enjoy some delicious garlic. Everyone is welcome, and no previous experience is required to join. Now that it's fall we're getting ready to plant our bulbs at our brand-new site! If you're interested in checking it out, contact Emma for details.
