Sooke Fall Fair to celebrate family farm in 2014

Theme has been chosen for the annual fair in Sooke

In honour of the United Nations International Year of Family Farming, this year’s Sooke Fall Fair is about supporting and promoting local farming and food production.

Our aim is to encourage the community to embrace family farms (from small gardens to commercial producers) and gain better knowledge about local suppliers of healthy food and what they grow. We will provide education about how family farms sustain the rural character and charm of the region while creating an economic benefit and growing a healthy community.
Sooke Fall Fair is collaborating along with Food CHI with advertising and support for Seedy Saturday on Feb 22, 2014 at the Sooke Community Hall. Seedy Saturday is providing the seeds  and we will see you all at the fair with those entries.

Sooke Fall Fair will again, be providing healthy lunches as well as muffins for all the Seedy Saturday goers and our fall fair market clients, in the dining room downstairs. We will have displays of some of the farms and will invite your names and photos to add to our fall fair catalogue collage cover. We will also have our 2013 Heritage Cookbook for sale.  Please email photos and/or names of your family operations to me at mrslewersfarmhouse@shaw.ca.  You will have until April 1 to submit your photos. We look forward to celebrating our first fall fair event of the year with all the communities. Happy farming.

Ellen Lewers, Sooke Fall Fair President
