Groundbreaking





This morning, in a pouring rain and driving wind, ground was broken for the soon-to-be-erected yurt sponsored by Poetry Gabriola. The site is just south of the Sustainability Centre in a small clearing surrounded by firs. Seen in the photos is PG Artistic Director Hilary Peach (and Flash) who was there to do the honours with a shovel and a smile.

Fall Fair 2010






Fall Fair was held today at The Commons and despite a steady drizzle, the event was well-attended by a broad cross-section of the community. Lots of fine food, great demonstrations, live music and dance and general good fun was enjoyed by all.

New Year, New Plots





Today, The Otters began the process of adding twenty additional allotment plots to the south field at The Commons. Fencing will be up in a month or less and the new gardeners can move on in.
