A few short days remain for those wishing to RSVP on a mouthwatering invitation from LifeCycles: RSVP by July 30th! It’s holding a summer soiree – the Local Food Fun-raiser – featuring “local food, drinks, music, a silent auction and great fun.” All happens Thursday August 11th, 2011 from 6-9pm @ Sleeping Dog Farm, 1506 Burnside Road West, Victoria BC, with catering by Nourish and Real Food Made Easy. The price is $60 with local alcoholic beverages for sale (charitable tax receipt given for a portion of the ticket). All proceeds will go to support LifeCycles core programs. For tickets (available via Paypal) head to LifeCycles website, or visit The Good Planet Co. located at 764 Fort St. in Victoria.
And if you’re out Sooke way, or would like to be, you can support Sooke Region Food CHI Society by attending its second annual Farm and Food Garden Tour on Sunday, August 14, from 10am-5 pm. This self guided tour will feature 11 unique local farms and gardens in and around the Otter Point area.
If you want to get more involved, you can contact Keeley Nixon if you’d like to volunteer at one of the venues to work with a grower, meet and greet people, and help with any set up/take down. This is a great chance to connect with more people in the community and show you support for our farmers.
