Sooke Region Food CHI Society, with generous support from the District of Sooke, is proud to present their first annual Farm and Food Garden Tour on Sunday, August 8 from 11am-5pm, rain or shine.

This self-guided tour features 12 beautiful, bountiful farms and gardens growing everything from fruit, vegetables, herbs and flowers to traditional foods and indigenous plants, and  raising heritage breeds of sheep, chickens, cows and pigs.

You’ll have a chance to admire a diverse range of farm buildings, including historical houses, yurts, cob buildings, earth ovens and greenhouses on new or historical properties, on small or large acreages lovingly worked by new or established growers.

Bring the family for a fun and educational event. Learn what you can grow and harvest in your own garden, check out demonstrations and purchase fresh produce right off the farm.

This event is a fundraiser for the 2010/2011 New Farmer Mentorship Program, helping new farmers succeed in their first season.
