Fall fair distributes beans to students

Kindergarten and Grade1 students were given heritage Asian beans, which can grow up to three feet long.

Sooke Fall Fair has distributed more than 3,000 bean seeds to local schools.

Kindergarten and Grade1 students were given heritage Asian beans, which can grow up to three feet long.

There is a category for the longest bean along with many other beany catagories at this year’s fall fair.

“Sooke will be full of beans, we hope in time for the fair,” said fall fair president Ellen Lewers.

The fall fair committee is also working on its catalogue and hopes to have it in circulation by the end of the month.

The Sooke Fall Fair is Sept. 10 and 11 at Sooke Community Hall.
