Fun at the Library! Watch this Movie!!

Saturday, October 3rd at 6:30 pm there will be a screening of the film "Island on the Edge" and a discussion with director Nick Versteeg. What a great way to spend a cozy Fall evening!
"Island on the Edge" takes a look at how dependent our close neighbor Vancouver Island is on the mainland for food, and what could happen if the transportation of food was cut off - and how island residents can strengthen their local agricultural resources!
The SJI Ag Guild of the San Juan Islands, the SJ County ARC, Lopez Comm. Land Trust, Orcas Pub. Library, & SJI Library are all co-sponsors.
Thanks, Eliza Buck, of the Economic Development Council, for letting us know about this timely movie and this chance to see it and meet the director at a fun evening at our lovely local Library!
(Also showing 6:30 Fri. at Lopez Comm. Center, and 6:30 Sun. at Orcas Pub. Library!)

While we're thinking about it...Do you know you can get your Food Handler's Card at the SJ Health Dept. for just 10$? It takes about 45 minutes on their computer, anytime between 8:00-1:00 M-F, go here for details. With a food handler's card, you can serve food, and also give Eleanor a hand packaging the bulk items at fabulous San Juan Island Food Co-Op!

In case you missed it on Ian's San Juan Island Update, today's the last day of Wed Farmers market for this year.
Nootka Rose has incredible, beautiful vegetables and fruit, and they're across from the courthouse from before 3 - 6 pm today, just in time for dinner grocery shopping.
