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.

Donations may be e-transferred to treasurer@onestraw.ca.
