We are very excited to be hosting a Seedy Saturday event this weekend, March 3rd at 10am located at the Lonsdale Quay Market. This will be a wonderful opportunity for our community to come swap seeds, buy seedlings and attend a free bee garden workshop. Also, I will be selling a bit of produce at Seedy Saturday!


For those who haven't heard, I would like to take a moment to announce that I have decided to pursue a new and exciting farming opportunity on Vancouver Island! This is such a thrilling and rare opportunity that I feel like I have to take this leap. It has not been an easy decision and it is with a heavy heart that I will be saying goodbye.

This employment has been has been extremely meaningful to me and I truly feel passionate about all the work that the EGP and NSNH does. I have been deeply inspired with all the brilliant people I have met and the work that is being done in this community. Thank you all deeply for helping me grow as a farmer and person this past year!
