Promises to be a great weekend!

May 2, 2013

Here are a couple of great ways to spend an hour or two this weekend!

Crafty Affaire

Crafty Affaire

First, is a vintage and handmade fair this Saturday, May 4, Elgin Hall, 14250 Crescent Road in South Surrey. Between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. you can find one-of-a-kind treasures and treats for all. Put on by Deja Vu Vintage Market which is backed by a pair of energetic South Surrey women, this group will also be having a grand exposition of vintage and handmade goods at the Wellbrook Winery on July 6th, with a portion of the proceeds to go to charity. More to come on this in a subsequent blog post.

This Sunday, May 5 between 11 and 5 pm, the Langley Gogos are hosting a plant and handmade accessories fundraiser at 18562 55th Avenue in Surrey. flowers April 30 2013 2013-04-28 007Included in the sale is the beautiful Kazuri jewellery,  hand-made in Nairobi, Kenya in a fair trade workshop which employs over 300 marginalized African women. You can see the jewellery here and I guarantee you will want some! All proceeds go to the Grandmothers to Grandmothers Campaign, Stephen Lewis Foundation, that works with grandmothers in Africa who are raising children orphaned by Aids.

Then for those of you who have been following my posts about food and community gardens recently, here is an update from Semiahmoo Food Network. The  Semiahmoo Food Network together with BC Healthy Communities and others are re-establishing the Food Action Coalition in White Rock and Surrey. There is a meeting on May 15th at 2:30 pm at Women’s Place in South Surrey 15318-20th Ave and all interested people are invited to attend. The purpose of the first meeting is to explore what worked in the past, what changes people would like to see and how they can begin anew with their vision of moving food policy forward.  For more information, contact deirdre@bchealthycommunities.ca.
