Member Potluck

Sunday, October 23 5:30 – 7:00
at One Tiny Farm (behind the Gumboot Restaurant in Roberts Creek)

Many a friend has been made at One Straw Society’s potlucks of the past. We’re so glad to be able to gather again after so long – It’s time to bring back the potluck! Come hang out in our heated circus tents at One Tiny Farm. No particular agenda.

Bring a dish to share, and your own plate / cutlery. 5:30 – 7:00

Soup Stories

October, November & December 2022

Soup Stories is a startup project, that connects elders and youth to share knowledge, stories, and hands-on skills with vulnerable youth and community members through making food together. These intergenerational community soup-making sessions take place at community kitchens and halls in several different communities, using locally sourced produce.

Soup is made in the afternoons as a small group, then served in the evening to the community (by donation) as a “Food for Thought” exchange, where we invite the community to talk and share thoughts about key issues that affect their community. Our hope is to take and use this community feedback for future project planning.

We hope to reconnect after all this social isolation, support neighbour to neighbour community building, value the role of our seniors, get people talking about what matters in their communities, and provide a dignified free food resource without stigma.

Save the first two dates:
Roberts Creek – Sunday Oct 16 (to wrap up the Art Crawl) 6:00 – 7:30
Gibsons – Sunday, Oct 30 (to wrap up Mushroomania festival) 6:00 – 7:30
Sechelt and beyond coming November/December
