The One Tiny Farm

It started with a dream.  And with some planning, hard work, dedication, hundreds of volunteer hours, and donations from countless people and organizations across the Coast, the dream has come true!

The One Tiny Farm behind the Gumboot Restaurant has transformed into a magical space, with abundant gardens, bursting greenhouses, a cute caravan, and space for feasts, gatherings, and community.

We’ve hosted workshops, a big table dinner, and run a successful market garden.  And this is only the beginning!

We’re looking forward to what we can all create together in the coming months and years.  And we would love you to get involved!

Ways you can help:

BECOME A MEMBER: Renew your membership or get one for friends & family! If you bought a “Lifetime Membership” in the past, consider investing in an annual membership that will continue to support programs and services. Better benefits too! http://www.onestraw.ca/connect/become-a-member/

DONATE: Lend the use of tractors, tillers, and tools, or donate/build small storage/studio buildings or cash. Cash donations are critical to being able to hire skilled people, buy materials, support volunteers, and liaise with organizations, food banks and vulnerable persons in the community.

Coming off of the energy of BCs first Virtual Seedy Saturday this past weekend, we are now turning our attention to our local seeds and the various ways to find them. First up...

Introducing: The Super Seed Swap Shop @ One Tiny Farm!

Are you a local seed seller or seedling grower looking for another venue to sell/swap/trade/educate? 

We would like to provide an open, collaborative stall at One Tiny
Farm for just that purpose! We welcome plant and seed donations for our fundraising efforts, but our main purpose is to be a hub for the crucial exchange of local seeds and seedlings

All BC Public Health Orders will be in effect (similar to BC Farmers Market guidelines)

Hours: 11:30 AM- 2PM

Saturday, Feb 27th, 2021 
Saturday, March 6th, 2021

* if things are going well, we might add another Saturday

*We are only able to have a few vendors/educators in our collaborative stall each Saturday in order to maintain Public Health protocols. So pre-registration is required. Get in touch with programs@onstraw.ca if you have seeds or seedlings to donate to our table, want to be there just to preach the good word of seed, or wish to be a vendor then get in touch and reserve your spot!
