This year’s theme is ” Haida Gwaii – Our Garden of Eating.” The fair show cases the Islands culture, arts and agriculture from animals, handicrafts, baking and garden flowers and produce. Anyone can enter! No matter how old or how young you are. It is a wonderful opportunity for you to show your handiwork, gardening, canning or baking skills. Let’s see how you use the theme in one of our many challenges, Photography, quilting, flower arranging, scarecrow to name a few. The craft challenge will be announced within the next month. Doug is putting out a challenge to all the bakers. He’d like to challenge you to bring a decorated cake based on this year’s theme. A few years ago, we had a poster contest.
