Halloween – Watch what you eat

On this farm we value life. We are always looking for ways to avoid using chemical fixes for problems.

More on how we do that in another post, though look at the “unusual” house our laying birds live in and ask why we do that… The food we eat is sometimes buggy and that’s ok, sometimes fails and that’s ok, We have a wide diversity of everything for that very reason, “Don’t put all your eggs in one basket!”

I watched this documentary [twice in 4 nights] It is one and a half hours long, which if you know me, is Not what I do.

and cannot recommend it enough. If you would like to try and understand why we MUST take control of what we eat, this is a huge part of why… Maybe we can start a movement in North Saanich, to stop using chemical means to clean our environment, as a tiny step in changing our world.

Election Time

With Thanksgiving over, we are now turning our attention to our future.

With our Municipal election fast approaching, we felt we could offer our rural N Saanich community an opportunity to meet electoral candidate, Sanjiv. We feel he has passion for community, great clarity and transparency in the ongoing North Saanich debate over our future.

Come by to the farm store at 9774 West Saanich Rd and meet Sanjiv, and ask all the questions you want before heading to the polls on Oct 12 or 15th

Wednesday Oct 12th 11.45 – 12.45

Thursday Oct 13th 12 – 1

Friday Oct 14th 1- 2

We are not sitting on the fence

We were young and poor when we chose the rural peninsula to make our home in 1981, we knew we wanted to be on the land [though we were naive about most things]

We found many different ways to make it work, all included hard graft.

41 years later we are passionate about building equity in the land, the farms soil is our bank account and we build it for ourselves and for the fantastic community we live in.

Climate change keeps us awake at night, our food supply cannot be turned on and off like a light, so we create fertile soils, plant trees and try and manage the drought and rain events when they happen.
