It’s harvest season, and our Fall Fundraiser is just around the corner!

 

The Event:

Featuring a locally-sourced appetizer buffet showcasing the season’s harvest, served at one of the last surviving bunkhouses in the Pacific Northwest.  

We are pleased to present Harold Steves – family farmer, Richmond city councillor and one of the founding fathers of BC’s Agricultural Land Reserve – as our featured speaker for the evening. Join us and Mayor Malcolm Brodie for a rare opportunity to learn about Richmond’s food history at one of our most unique heritage sites. Tickets are $45 and include an appetizer buffet and a raffle for various valuable prizes.
