One Straw’s Shared Plate Potluck & AGM

Tuesday, November 26, 2019

5:30 PM – 7:30 PM

One Straw Society has a long history of a good chin wag over shared meals. It’s what our towns were built on… solving the world’s problems with food, music and conversation! 🍛🎶

Join your neighbours, friends and fellow gardeners for a Shared Plate Potluck and our Annual General Meeting. Come eat, dance, chat, and find out what’s been happening, what’s coming, elect our directors, and brainstorm together.

* TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 26
* Dinner @ 5:30 (Come a few minutes early to set up your food)
* at the Roberts Creek Community Hall!
* Bring a healthy appy, main, salad or dessert to share (This is a plate dinner… no foods that require a bowl for this one, please!)

Open to members and your families. Wait. Not a member yet or need to renew? Click here:

As we lead up to this year’s AGM, consider what secret superpowers and time you might have that could help…
Can you volunteer for an event, the Ocean Vegetable Community Garden, do fundraising, bookkeeping, or other key admin support? We need to hear from you, now more than ever!
………………………………………

One Straw Society is a little grass roots organization focused on FOOD SECURITY here on the Coast, where we rely on food being trucked in by ferry. Seedy Saturday, the Fall Faire, the Ocean Vegetables Community Garden, and lots of other events, workshops, advocacy and partnerships are all made possible by volunteers building a sustainable, healthy community together!

If you think about food growing, food security, water issues, GMOs, sustainability, food policy, the ALR, or just want to learn more to be able to…
grow,
harvest,
preserve/can,
pickle,
forage,
dehydrate,
or ferment…

Come join us! Get in touch! Volunteer! Nominate someone (or yourself) for the Board of Directors! Nomination deadline is Nov. 19!
