It was a beautiful day, pitching in at Bob and Velda's on the last Garden Party there before this hardworking couple retire from full time farming!
Below: One of our biggest garden parties yet took place in a timely fashion, just after Bruce injured his foot with a chainsaw! Some thirty folks showed up to help out Bruce & Lee Andra in anticipation of their farm's first ever time on the annual Denman Home and Garden Tour.

Below: other groups of Denman Island residents and visitors who have pitched in together to show and share support for our hardworking local organic farmers over the last few growing seasons!

Our local organic growers make their fresh picked, pesticide and gmo free produce available at the Farm Gate, and throughout the summer at Denman's Saturday market. Think globally and act locally by shopping for seasonal fruits and veggies at our market from the May long weekend through to mid September!

Islanders are initiating a co-operative harvest sharing project called SPUDS. Member families and individuals will enjoy a steady supply of potatoes all year long, or until each harvest runs out, for a nominal yearly fee and contribution of time in the field! Get in touch for further information, and find out how you can be part of establishing sustainable, local food security right here on Denman!
