Tahsis Days Silent Auction

Our Tahsis Community Garden Society donated a great prize this year:

Congratulations to June, who had the winning bid.  We hope you enjoy your herbs! 

Tahsis Days 2015 Slugfest

There's always great snacks at the garden!  Thanks to the Village of Tahsis for the leftover zucchini from the zucchini races.  They were used as kabob holders for the fruit, then taken home by a visitor to fry up! 

Alice, Ellen and Agatha, we were so glad to see our old friends again!  Agatha was our very first gardener when the raised beds were built in 2010.  Alice has done a lot of work at the community garden in Zeballos. 

Gale Bates and one of her many interesting displays
Our garden enjoyed a visit from Gayle Bates, Comox Strathcona Waste Management Contract Waste Reduction Educator!  Gayle was fun and engaging, and spoke to us about recycling, waste reduction, composting and more!  She shared tons of prizes and words of wisdom and encouragement.  


Karma had fun following a scavenger hunt devised by Marion Howell, here she had found "something orange".

Jude and Gayle

It was so hot, thankfully there was plenty of ice cold lemonade for everyone.  Thanks to the Olsons for lending us your dispenser, and thanks to CMESS for lending us the cups so we could continue to be "trash free" in the garden. 

Our special honorary slug destroyer Dudley came for a visit with his human, Juanita

Jan visits from Maple Ridge


Graham and Karma check out the plum tree that was planted when Karma was born.

Jan won the draw, a great market basket!


Gayle brought lots of crafting fun for everyone

One important fact about our 4th annual Slugfest.  There was not one slug to be found ANYWHERE!  It has just been too hot and dry.  Caleb, who was our grand champion at our 1st slugfest was really hoping to find one, but he had no luck.  The only slug to be seen was this wonderful knitted slug, made by the talented knitter Janet Kirsop.  Andrea won him in the draw.

Starting to Work with the Chips

Thanks to Terry for starting the job yesterday with several feet done, and thanks to Stephanie, Aubrey, Kim, Kieren, Gareth and Karli for this morning putting in a good hour of labour to get the chips spread around our perimeter!  We still have a way to go, but this is a great start!
