The Fall Faire

The season may be winding down, but an important task still remains: celebrating the bounty of the harvest!

The Fall Faire is where food lovers, gardeners, farmers and artisans alike gather together to share the fruits of their labours–often literally!

Preserves, pies, pumpkins, an abundance of fresh grown local produce and food inspired crafts are abound at this decadent celebration of food.

Please join us for One Straw Society’s Annual Fall Faire on Sunday October 6th from 12pm – 5pm at the Roberts Creek Community Hall

We are excited to host another great community event with a Local Farmers and Artisan Market, Hot Drinks, Workshops, Kids Pumpkin Carving, Scarecrow contest, Pie Sale, Music and more!

Seedy Saturday

How does the Seed Exchange work?

Bring pre-packaged seeds and receive an equivalent amount of seed packets for free from the seed exchange table.

Seed must be labelled with:

  • Year of preservation
  • Type of crop (peas, carrots, etc)
  • Name of variety (“Black Prince Roma,” for example… if you know it!)

Little envelopes from the dollar store work really well, but ziplocks will do in a pinch.

This is one of the biggest gardening events on the Coast, so don’t miss it!

Parking is usually limited at the hall, so what better opportunity to try a rideshare?

Seedy Saturday is the Sunshine Coast’s annual community planting season kickoff event and One Straw fundraiser. Held at Roberts Creek Hall, Seedy Saturday is always loaded with opportunities to connect with other garden enthusiasts and food producers on the Coast.

Saving seeds and growing food are among the most radical things you can do! At Seedy Saturday, you can access some of the best quality, non GMO, chemical free seeds, many that have been harvested by local growers and community members on the Sunshine Coast.

Seeds also help you save money and cut out the middleman for buying food–—as long as we have seeds, we hold the key to providing food, medicine and tools for the community.

Exchanging seeds keeps our community rich!

Buy your food, herb, or flower seeds for the year, or seedlings you can transplant directly.

Take advantage of knowledgeable food producers to get the best harvest with your inside scoop!

All funds raised go to support future One Straw events, workshops and programming.

Edible Garden Tour

The Edible Garden Tour

The Edible Garden Tour is a great way to meet local farmers and gardeners on their home turf. Follow along as farmers, home gardeners and community garden coordinators open up their growing spaces to the public.

The farms and gardens on the tour change from year to year to keep things fresh and interesting. Visit a variety of food growing spaces, from the humble backyard oasis to thriving 10 acre working farms. Enjoy workshops, see unique and effective growing techniques, live entertainment, eat tasty treats, and network with your fellow gardeners.

The Edible Garden Tour is meant to celebrate and support our local food system!

We are always looking for fresh locations. No garden too big or too small! Please contact foodnetwork@onestraw.ca with any questions, or if you are interested in having us visit.
