For a blast of late summer fun, come to Sunshine Coast Botanical Garden Harvest Festival on Sunday, September 4, 11am-4 pm, 5941 Mason Road, West Sechelt. You’ll enjoy vegetable harvesting, sales of organic garlic, home baking, preserves, honey and plants, plus live music by Brothers in Farms.
There will be oodles of family activities – children’s crafts, tasting, giant croquet, nature weaving, solar viewing, beehive information, refreshments by Farm to Feast, and lots of room to picnic and play. The Woodcrafters and Spinners and Weavers Guilds will be showing their craft, and Master Gardeners will answer your questions. Take a tour, become a Botanical Garden member, or sign up for a class for fall.
Admission to the Festival is by donation (suggested $5/adult; $2/child) – please pay what you can to support the growing Botanical Garden. In addition, bring a food item – home-grown or purchased – to share the bounty with the Food Bank. This event is dogs-on-leash friendly but please avoid food areas. Carpooling is recommended.
