Description:

The late summer harvest is upon us and it is time to celebrate! On Sunday September 17th join Earthwise Agassiz at 6031 Golf Road to celebrate the harvest and learn more about the plans for this site. Doors will be open from 10:00 am – 2:00 pm. Guests are invited to explore the wonderful features of the property, take a self guided tour of the site and enjoy a stroll along the newly initiated streamside and woodland trail. Freshly harvested organic produce from the Earthwise Farm will be available for sale along with local artisanal items. Chef Derek Bothwell, of Vancouver's Bottleneck Restaurant, be on location to serve delicious lunch offerings featuring produce fresh from the farm. Representatives from the Earthwise Society and other local organizations will be there to share information about the projects under way or planned for the property. Earthwise Society acquired the Agassiz Demonstration Farm and Garden in 2015 and since then they have been working together with community partners, organizations, and volunteers. This year, the Society initiated the first phases of an ecological demonstration garden featuring heritage, pollinator and native plants, enhanced riparian habitat along the Miami River, began to create a streamside and woodland trail, and expanded their organic farm production, including an apiary. Learn about these projects and others at the September 17th event. If you are interested in learning more about the Agassiz Summer Harvest Open House, or would like to get involved, please email Jocelyn Whalen at projects@earthwisesociety.bc.ca.
