Farmhouse Concert, Greenhouse Celebration, Open House, and Jam Session
Friday, 25 May 2012, 1-5 PM
2172 Fulford-Ganges Road, Salt Spring Island (How to get to EcoReality)
EcoReality Co-op, a sustainable cooperative organic farm in the Fulford Valley
Because we just put up a humongous greenhouse, and need to celebrate!

Please join us in welcoming wandering organic farm minstrel Salvador Dali Lama, who will regale you with his eclectic "gypsybilly" style of singing and songwriting. Dali (as he likes to be called) is doing a tour of Western Canada organized by Willing Workers on Organic Farms.

Although Dali is playing farm house concerts across the country, our big reason for inviting him is to help celebrate the completion and operation of our large new greenhouse, up and cranking out starts for both vegetables and medicinal herbs, which will be available for sale at the event.


Event Details

Doors open at 12:30 PM on Friday for an informal "meet-n-greet" where people can have a word with Dali and get a quick tour of our new humongous greenhouse.

The house concert begins at 1:15 PM, in the greenhouse. (Or if the weather is totally unsuitable, in the classroom.) Dali will perform two 45 minute sets with an intermission in-between.

Then from 3-5 PM, we get informal in the "open house" portion of the event, and Dali will jam with whomever brings instruments while Jan, Carol, and Ben give tours of the newly completed greenhouse and the gardens.

Organic, local snacks and refreshments are served at intermission and during open house.

EcoReality Co-op farmstead items will be available for purchase, as well! We will also be taking applications for our community supported dairy shares. (Only dairy herd shareholders may receive dairy products.)

Admission is by donation, with $5 to $15 suggested.

If you feel so inclined, fill in the form below, or email, or call 250-653-2024 to let us know you're coming so we'll have enough eats, or simply show up for the concert, open house/jam, or both, and hope we have enough!

We hope to see you on Friday, 25 May!
