The entries are starting to roll in! The Food Program's art contest is underway for local Galiano kids ages 5-12, sketching/drawing/painting their "Favorite Food in the Garden." Winners will be announced at the Summer Picnic and published in the Active Page. Drawings/paintings should be on letter-sized paper, with child's name, age and contact information on a separate cover page, as artwork will be judged blind. Please note the correct deadline for submissions is AUGUST 13th.

Pea Harvest at the School Garden!

Pea Harvest at the School Garden! This Friday, July 25, from 12-1:30pm. We'll harvest the hundred+ pea plants that the school kids planted earlier this year. Many of these plants are five-to-six feet tall and all have been highly productive and are at their prime this week. The summer camp kids have been enjoying the peas but we have more than can be eaten off the vine, so the extra bounty will be harvested and saved for the Soup for Seniors program. All volunteers can take home some produce from the garden. Please come out for a good cause -- we need your help!

WORK PARTIES AT THE LEARNING CENTRE

As the Galiano Conservancy continues to develop the Learning Centre volunteers help to extend the benefits of grants and donations. Please join us on Tuesdays from 10 am to noon. Most weeks we will weed and water the greenhouse and garden then prepare the garden for much bigger crops next year. Please wear appropriate clothing, footwear and gloves. Bring lunch and join us at the cove for lunch and a swim. 10825 Porlier Pass Road
