Please join us in volunteering at Earthwise Farm in Tsawwassen on June 4th, 10am to 1pm. We will help out with some farm tasks like planting and weeding. There will be an opportunity to explore the farm ecosystem that supports vegetable crops, berries, fruit trees, a native flower and herb garden, bees, and resident barn owls. We may also see many other birds that tend to hang out in the Boundary Bay area. Located in the Boundary Bay area, Earthwise Farm is part of a community based agricultural movement that is revolutionizing our food system. The two acre certified organic farm models small scale agriculture for urban edge communities and works to reestablish personal connections with the land where our food is grown. The farm is run by Earthwise Society, a not-for-profit, charitable organization cultivating sustainable communities through environmental education and stewardship (http://www.earthwisesociety.bc.ca).
This event will go forward rain or shine. Come prepared for the weather and activity including sturdy shoes, rain gear, sunhat, sunscreen, and clothes that can get dirty. Please bring water and you may also want to bring a snack. Work/gardening gloves are available but feel free to bring your own. Physical activities may involve walking on uneven terrain, crouching, kneeling, bending and carrying light loads. Please contact Nancy at firstname.lastname@example.org or 604-566-6033 to register and arrange for carpooling.
