STAWAMUS COMMUNITY FARM: We would like to invite you to take part in an Energy Exchange CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) that will take place over the summer and fall months of this year.

Our Learning Expeditions students have been working hard to rebuild the farm and prepare it for a successful and prosperous growing season.

The initial intent for the Stawamus Community Farm was to provide a place and space for Stawamus students and families to engage directly with the land that sustains us. With this in mind, we are opening up the farm for families to get involved throughout the summer and fall.

What would the Energy Exchange CSA look like?

Every two weeks, all families involved would meet at the farm for 1-2 hours. Each Family would be in charge of maintaining 1-2 beds (weeding, harvesting, washing, seeding etc.). In exchange for their time and effort spent on the farm, each family would take home a share of the produce once the time for harvest comes.

How many families can be involved?

Since this is our first year offering this program, we have space for 5 families to start. This will be on a first come first serve basis. We are hoping to expand next year in order to be able to accommodate additional families. If you are interested in participating, please contact Hilary Pink at hcpink@hotmail.com

CONSTELLATION FESTIVAL TICKETS – For a $15 donation, your name will be entered into a draw to win Constellation Festival Tickets!! The winner will be announced at the end of the Spring Tla’ashen. We have 2 Constellation Festival tickets, each for 2ppl. All proceeds will go towards upgrading our library’s tech and book collection.
