Something New This Year for Summer!

August is Flavour and Fun Month

Once a week in August, you are invited to come and sample the products of one of four local businesses The Tea Farm, Valhalla Farms, Dragonfly Dreaming and Golda's Finest Foods, and learn how they use the bounty of a garden harvest in their jams, fermented goods, beauty products and more! Dates and times are listed on our Seminar Page. We hope you come and enjoy the fun. All events are free to attend.

The Tea Farm - Thursday, August 4 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Margit and Victor are blenders of fine loose-leafed tea and the owners of the only working farm in Canada to grow Camellia sinensis, a shrub whose leaves and buds are used in tea making. These lovely folks will guide you through growing, harvesting, and processing of tea (Camellia sinensis). Learn about the distinction between actual tea and herbal infusions from herbs and flowers grown in your garden. You will also be able to purchase their organic artisan blended teas.


Valhalla Farms - Herbs and Things: Saturday, August 13 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Pat and Henri live on a twelve acre farm here in the Cowichan Valley where they grow herbs, raise chickens, ducks, and llamas. They create wonderful jams, jellies, vinegars, herbal teas, and much more. All of these products use herbs to accentuate and enhance the flavours already present in the foods they create. They will have tasty samples, share pointers on how to use your herb harvest to make your own delicious preserves and teas, and they will be discussing herb growing alternatives that you may not have thought of.
