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/

Tiny Farm, Big Table: The Vibes

Its taken us a couple of days to pick ourselves up from this one. We are still getting emails and messages about how beautiful it all was.

Tiny Farm Big Table Dinner is a fundraiser farm-to-table dinner under a marquee of twinkle lights, with 7 private chefs, a distillery, brewery, cidery, and live band playing washboards and stand-up bass in the garden. Together we are building food security for our most vulnerable, ourselves, and our great great great grandchildren. 💚

 Stay tuned for ticket sales for the final dinner of 2021 happening on September 11.

A couple weeks ago we hosted an inspiring evening spent in the new Gibsons Community Garden with Charlie Durrant and Brad Jennens of @Summerhill Fine Homes about the emergent design process involved in a community driven, collaborative garden development.

Get involved in the new garden! We’re hosting a community work party on august 3rd from 5:30-7pm helping establish growing boxes and doing some site preparation. Bring a shovel (if you have one) gloves and some water. We’ll provide some refreshments. The new Gibsons Community Garden Site is at 675 Industrial Way (Between industrial way and Seamount Way).

Help bring this new urban agriculture garden to life. See you then!

Hands in the dirt instead of on the iPad! Weve been working to get kids excited about food, nutrition, gardening, and farming. These are our future food producers, so we built a childrens garden as a project with our partners, Roberts Creek Childcare Society, and now we get to see little ones here at One Tiny Farm all the time! 

They’re growing bean teepees, painting rocks, and eating dirty carrots. Preschool, after-school, and day-camp programs... Its so awesome! Many thanks to Sunshine Coast Foundation for helping make it possible! Click our album for more photos: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?vanity=onestrawsociety&set=a.10165297733010697

Interested in having your kiddos join in? Go to robertscreekchildcaresociety.com or give them a ring. The after school program starts in September, limited spots available. It’s such a wonderful program!
