We're pleased to announce that Sandra Holloway (Phoebe's daughter) has invited us back to stage our 3rd Summer Fete in her garden on Sunday, June 23rd, from 1:00 to 4:00! This year, we'll be featuring 2 local beverage producers, Domaine Rochette (from Victorian Epicure) with local wines, and Sea Cider with their popular local ciders. Some of our wonderful artists will be returning (Judy McLaren, Stephanie Steele, Heather Goulet, Rob Dempster), and we'll be featuring some new artists (Maggie Warkentine, John Maloney). Brad Prevedoros will again entertain and inspire us with his music, and Sandra will be on hand to educate and enlighten us with stories of her mother, and tips to create a vegetable garden like her beautiful example in the heart of the garden.
We'll also be raffling a painting created by Judy McLaren (and generously donated by the artist) in the garden last year (Phoebe's Orchard, 2012).
Tickets for the event are $20 for NSFFS members and $25.00 for non-members. Tickets for the raffle are 1/$5.00 or 3/$10.00, available at the June 8th, 15th and 22nd markets, at Russell Nursery, Dig This in Sidney, and Sea Cider (or by calling Penny at 250-656-3054 or Sue at 250-656-1236). All proceeds support the work of our Society and our efforts to support and sustain a year-round local food system.
