Garlic festivals galore! Two on the weekend of August 18th: The Edible Vancouver Garlic Festival at Limbert Mountain Farm is August 18th and Terra Nova Sharing Farm's is on the 19th.
September brings Naramata Bench's Tailgate Party, the annual Feast of Fields, Fraser Valley Cork & Keg, and the smokin' hot annual competition, BBQ on the Bypass.
A wet June and rapid snow melt resulted in flooding through much of BC. In Abbotsford, Glen Valley Organic Farm lost about $40,000 in crops. Vancity has agreed to match the public's donations, so if you can help, even in a small way, it will be greatly appreciated.
