New season of strawberries in full swing Everbearing strawberry is the size of California varieties, but tastes like a sweet B.C. original by Matthew Hoekstra Staff Reporter

Michelle Titleborn shows off the bounty of a Richmond Country Farms’ field Tuesday.

For strawberry lovers, it’s a beautiful sight: a field of hulking red berries clinging to bright green plants, with pickers trying to keep up with demand. It’s strawberry season at Richmond Country Farms—and it’s nearly September. This year the longtime Steveston Highway farm began growing everbearing strawberries, eschewing the widely known varieties that bear fruit in June. Richmond Country Farms’ new variety, the Albion, slowly started coming off the pesticide-free fields in July and is now in full production on the farm’s five acres. “It ramped up slowly up until now, and hopefully it’ll keep producing like this,” said farmer Lucas Hogler from the field Tuesday. “It looks like the size and appearance of a California berry, but the taste is like a local.” His dad Harry Hogler grew Junebearing strawberries for 50 years before giving up on the finicky fruit several years ago. It seemed that just before harvest each year, rain, hail or a plant virus would

ruin the crop. Now they’re back in production with the everbearing plant, which continues to produce sweet fruit until the fall frost. It is, however, a more labour intensive crop, and everbearing plants have a shorter lifespan than traditional varieties. But a longer growing season— and the possibility of local greenhouses competing with California in winter—are enough for some farmers to make the change. “A lot of people are starting to switch over to this style of strawberry,” said Lucas Hogler. “I think it’s going to open up the market. Local growers will be competing a bit more with the California berries.” Richmond’s Birak Berry Farm also grows everbearing strawberries, which are available for U-pick at 4200 No. 6 Rd. Some of Richmond's other small farms stock them as well.

"Local growers will be competing a bit more with the California berries.”

UA Local 170 donates $95,000 to hospital Plumber and pipefitter union contribution will buy new breathing box for Richmond Hospital by Martin van den Hemel Staff Reporter A Lower Mainland trade union has made a sizable donation that will have Richmond residents breathing easier in the future. The United Association of Journeyman and Apprentices of the Plumbing and Pipefitting Industry of Canada and the United States Local 170 made a $95,000 donation to Richmond Hospital Foundation that will be used to purchase a new breathing box at Richmond Hospital, a medical device that will help doctors assess and diagnose lung disease and monitor changes over time. The donation was announced Monday at the Delta-based United Association Piping Industry College of B.C., an impressive educational facility that Richmond Hospital CEO Mike Nader and Richmond Hospital Foundation CEO Natalie Meixner received a tour of. In thanking the trade union, Nader noted that Richmond is the second fastest growing community in B.C. behind only Surrey, and is also an aging one. As the community gets older, that’s when healthcare resources are needed the most, he said. “Certainly, our partnerships with the trade unions are instrumental for us to keep up with the demands in health care,” said Nader. Dr. Iqbal Ahmed, director of the pulmonary function lab at Richmond Hospital, was all smiles about the donation—a “wonderful gift,” he said—which will help him do his job better. “Breathing is really one of the basic sort of things anyone deals with. If you can’t breath,

you can’t do a lot of things,” he said, adding that the incidence of lung disease is increasing. Richmond’s pulmonary function lab sees more than 2,000 patients a year, but there are waiting lists and many patients have to leave Richmond for testing. “Whether it’s for an emergency or for any other health care needs—we all want our

highly skilled health care professionals here to be equipped with the latest, most advanced tools for the best possible care for our community,” Meixner said. The gift is the first major donation by a trade union to Richmond Hospital Foundation. Joe Shayler, business manager and financial secretary for the trade union, said: “Our union

members are dedicated to ensuring public health and safety through using proper procedures and complying with all applicable codes to support the highest standards in our industry. This donation to Richmond Hospital is a further demonstration of our commitment to the health and safety of the communities we serve.”

City seeks to liven Steveston riverfront Water taxi service, kayak lessons, boat tours all options by Matthew Hoekstra Staff Reporter City officials are making an attempt to animate the river near Steveston. A new request for expressions of interest is calling for operators to pitch their ideas for waterfront recreational services at Imperial Landing and Britannia Shipyards. Officials are suggesting a canoe and kayak tour and rental business, a water taxi service and boat tours could make use of riverside space by entering revenue-sharing or rental agreements with the city. The city owns floats at both Steveston sites, including new ones at Imperial Landing, which stretch 183 metres. It’s at Imperial Landing where the city has an existing relationship with a company, Kaymaran Adventure Tours, which offers

lessons and tours. Its agreement with the city expires at summer’s end, according to city spokesperson Kim Decker. Decker said the new call for operators will tell the city if there’s interest from other providers for such a service or other waterfront recreational services. Other animation at the Imperial Landing floats has trickled in from small pleasure craft, which are now permitted to moor there for up to three days. Another business, Steveston EcoTours, operates out of Britannia in an “informal” arrangement with the city, noted Decker. According to the city’s 2009 waterfront strategy, the passages between the South Arm islands off of Steveston provide calm waters excellent for tours, particularly for kayaks. The islands of Woodwards, Duck and Barber are part of Richmond, while other islands in the area—Kirkland, Gunn and Williamson islands, are owned and managed by the Nature Trust of B.C. The call for expressions of interests closes Sept. 26. If the city nets interest, a contract could be awarded in October.

A new online traffic map for the Lower Mainland has been unveiled that anonymously tracks cellphone signals to calculate and display congestion levels in real time. According to the transportation ministry, personal data from cellphones is removed before being incorporated in the map’s data system, but privacy advocates have expressed concern. The map is on the translink.ca and drivebc. ca websites. It was developed by TransLink and the $1.2 million cost was shared by the federal and provincial governments. Major arteries are colour coded, with red indicating very slow traffic and green showing it’s moving smoothly. It’s also expected to help various agencies study traffic flows in Metro Vancouver. The map covers Highway 1 from Horseshoe Bay to Chilliwack, Highway 99 from the Peace Arch to Whistler, as well as all other numbered highways and major commuter routes in the region.

by Jeff Nagel

7380 WESTMINSTER HWY., RICHMOND

Black Press The NDP’s justice critic is urging the province to overhaul its process for reviewing roadside driving bans imposed on drinking drivers in light of a recent court ruling. Leonard Krog said the government should proactively offer to re-review other cases if the procedure for weighing challenges turns out to have been incorrect. The B.C. Supreme Court this month quashed one roadside driving ban that had been upheld in the review process, deciding a report setting out guidelines for use of alcohol screening devices was inadmissible. Defence lawyers say the ruling could be grounds for many more roadside prohibitions to be appealed. Krog said the government must be scrupulously fair in how it handles challenges of the penalties, because they take effect immediately and are dispensed at the roadside by police, not a judge. “In our zeal to get drunk drivers off the road, which is something we all share, it doesn’t mean you get to disregard the rights of citizens to fairness in the hearing process,” he said. “It clearly opens up the possibility of many other people asking for judicial reviews.” Government lawyers are still reviewing the implications of the overturned decision. But Justice Minister Suzanne Anton said the ruling appears to be largely procedural and unlikely to threaten the three-year-old legislation underpinning the Immediate Roadside Prohibitions. “When you have a new program, you can expect that people are going to take runs at it,” she said. “But fundamentally, the legislation remains very sound.” Anton said about 1,500 roadside prohibitions are issued each month and just two per cent on average are successfully challenged. Alcohol-related fatalities have plunged 51 per cent since the expanded system of suspensions kicked in nearly three years ago—replacing criminal prosecutions of many impaired drivers—and the government estimates 143 lives have been saved. Anton said the regulations continue to have a powerful effect deterring people from drinking and then driving. “People understand the immediate serious consequences that flow from that.” Drivers who get an Immediate Roadside Prohibition can lose their driving privileges for up to 90 days, have their vehicle impounded and face hefty fines as well as costly installation of an ignition interlock device in their vehicle. Documents recently disclosed under Freedom of Information show drivers who challenge their rulings to the Superintendent of Motor Vehicles aren’t told if the screening device used to test them was later found to be inaccurate. They’re merely told their driving prohibition was deemed invalid, without provision of specific reasons, usually weeks after the vehicle was impounded and the licence suspended. The province pays towing and storage bills of appellants who are successful.

Transit police are overpaid fare takers

J

ordan Bateman, B.C. director of Canadian Taxpayers Federation, has for months has been highlighting the excessive pay and light workload of TransLink police officers.

His latest missive was released Thursday. Information on TransLink salaries shows that 141 TransLink employees made more than $100,000 last year. Included in that figure is 58 of the 166

TransLink police officers. Bateman has noted before that these officers rarely stray far from the SkyTrain line. Bateman says about half of them are working on only one file, other than fare evasion, per month. Many of the TransLink police are retired from other police forces, and collecting pensions in addition to their pay from TransLink. They get extra pay for working on Sundays, according to their collective agreement. It’s obvious the Trans-

Link police model does not provide good value for taxpayers, and Bateman is right to keep harping on this topic. TransLink is broke. It has no additional sources of revenue on the horizon, and cannot afford to expand services. Its top executives are drawing hefty salaries, between $300,000 and $400,000 per year. While these salaries are high, the top executives do have many responsibilities. On the other hand, TransLink police officers

have few responsibilities. Despite months of publicity about their lack of meaningful work, and the serious problems on certain bus routes, particularly in Vancouver, TransLink Police still stay off the buses. There they might actually have some real police work to do. It is high time the TransLink board and senior executives took a good hard look at just what TransLink Police does, and how much it costs. If the force does not start doing more significant police

work, it should either be disbanded or reduced by at least two-thirds. There should be no premiums for working on Sundays. Transit operates on a seven-day week. In addition, there needs to be changes made to pension plans, so that TransLink police officers who draw pensions have some of their pension income clawed back, and used to keep that particular pension plan healthy. There is no justification for double dipping. —Black Press

dvanced Education Minister Amrik Virk has offered some advice for students heading for post-secondary education this fall.

In a commentary sent to B.C. newspapers, Virk reminded students that his task “is to ensure post-secondary students obtain the experience and qualifications needed to put a paycheque in their back pocket.” B.C. is forecast to have one million jobs to fill by 2020, through a combination of retirements and economic growth. More than 40 per cent of them will require trades and technical training, and for students, likely a move north. “My advice to students is to look at where the jobs are based and tailor their education and training to match,” Virk wrote. “Our population is concentrated in the Lower Mainland and southern Vancouver Island, but as a resource-based economy, many directly and indirectly related jobs are located elsewhere.” That’s not the only blunt message for students deciding on a career. While defending his ministry’s spending plans in the recent legislature session, Virk described some of the problems that are

entrenched. Parents, particularly in immigrant communities, push their children towards medicine, law, dentistry or engineering, he noted. Students themselves gravitate toward areas that are familiar to them, such as teaching. B.C. universities graduated 2,000 new teachers last year. Another 850 arrived from out of province and were licensed to teach in B.C. During the same year, the B.C. school system hired 800 teachers. And many of those jobs were outside metropolitan areas. It’s been hammered into us by the B.C. government’s endless “jobs plan” advertising, and a similar campaign by Ottawa, that more students need to focus on trades and resource in-

dustries. Virk acknowledges that his budget contains another $1 million for advertising, the same as last year, much of it to reinforce the need to fill skilled jobs. But he danced around the question of whether there will be spaces in technical programs. NDP critics say the waiting list for these kinds of programs at Kwantlen University and B.C. Institute of Technology are running between a year and three years. And they have frequently noted that advanced education spending is budgeted to decline by $42 million over the next three years. Virk said post-secondary institutions working with industry have produced 456 additional seats in highdemand programs for this

year. It’s a start. In July, Premier Christy Clark joined the chorus of premiers protesting Ottawa’s plan to claw back $300 million in federal training money to provinces, for its new employerdriven Canada Jobs Grant. Clark and New Brunswick Premier David Alward were assigned to find an alternative to this drastic shift and report back in the fall. As usual, the NDP spent lots of time grilling Virk about student debt and the alleged need to reduce it. Ministry statistics show that about 30 per cent of students take out loans from the federal-provincial program, and the average is $20,000. One of the latest changes is a program of grants that go toward student debt as a re-

ward for those who complete their chosen program. With 23,000 students collecting $41 million in grants, it might be working. For all the fuss about student debt, students pay only about a third of costs. The rest is on taxpayers, whether it produces any useful education or not. Virk is under instructions to review the student loan program “to find further improvements to meet students’ needs.” Given the magnitude of the gap between what skills our education system produces and what the economy needs, a larger shift in priorities is needed.

letters Spending $25 million to accommodate 6,000 riders is ridiculous Editor: Re: “Peter Principle at work at TransLink,” Letters, Aug. 15, and cash transfers from bus to Skytrain. In Seattle they have the Orca Card which works the same way. If you pay cash, you have to pay twice for light rail train and bus. In San Francisco your cable car fare entitles you to ride the bus system but not the BART, and vice versa. When we were in Boston, the “Charlie Card” is the way to go, accepted everywhere. Spending $25 million to accommodate 6,000 riders is ridiculous. It would be cheaper to give these riders free Compass Cards for life. By the way, they will accept “cash” when you purchase a Compass Card. T. C. Chong Richmond

Britannia gets too much attention Editor: Re: City spending at Britannia Heritage Shipyards. Britannia is not the only cityowned heritage site in Richmond but by the amount of money being poured into it you would almost believe it is the only one the city really cares about. While many thousands of taxpayer dollars were spent on weeks of full-page colour advertisements in several greater Vancouver newspapers touting the recent Britannia Maritime Festival, London Farm Day got nothing more than one simple text press release in our local papers. Britannia was flamboyant with signage, pennants, flags and massive origami cranes. London

Farm didn’t even rate a banner. Don’t get me wrong, after more than 30 years of advocating for the preservation of Steveston’s heritage, I applaud the city for finally realizing there is value in our history and I want Britannia to be a success but not at the expense of other sites which are equally valuable and deserving of attention. Granted, Britannia is a big site but it is getting a disproportionately large percentage of the city’s heritage budget. It’s time for Richmond to be fair and equally support all the heritage sites that are struggling to keep our history alive. Edith Turner Richmond

Greenway turns a wasteland into a wonderland Editor: I like the new trail along Railway. I took it a couple of times. I saw many people, families, kids, youth, middle-aged youth, couples, seniors, with different kinds of methods, by walk, on bicycle, cycling, rolling,

blading, jogging, running, walking dogs, etc., to exercise themselves. I like the trail on asphalt, for it will not be dusty or muddy when the weather is windy or rainy. I did not have sore legs after walking on it. I like to take walks on the dyke for the spectacular view, but my joints did not, because of the gravel topping—they ached after walking. I saw many community gardens are right next to asphalt topped roads. We see plants growing beautifully along roadsides. I suggest to set up different sections for community gardens, and encourage people of English, Chinese, Japanese, Indian, Philippines, European, etc. to plant plants (trees, flowers, fruits) of their country, along the trail where there is still no planning. When the greenway is fully completed, it will be like Minoru track, crowded with people who like to do exercises. The greenway will become a facility to assist Richmondites to live a healthy life in Richmond. This greenway project turns a wasteland into a wonderland. Nothing is more beautiful than that. It’s not an eyesore, but an eyeful. I give my thumbs up. Shirley Wong Richmond

Alice Wong’s Annual Community BBQ

Editor: Richmond School District’s CUPE support workers do not want to go on strike. We are very up front and honourable and want you to know, first of all, this most important fact. We love our jobs and are dedicated to the students and teaching staff in the district, the people we work with on a daily basis. Our work and our part in the educational system always meets the highest standards and Richmond School District’s reputation reflects that. Now that I have been up front, stating clearly that we do not wish to go on strike, I request that the provincial government be equally straightforward and honest in their negotiating with our union. Our negotiating committee has been negotiating for months with the provincial government. In the latest round of negotiations, we were told that if we asked for a pay raise we had to come to the table with ideas to save an equal amount of money. Our negotiating team did just this. The government representatives on the other side of the table replied with nothing. Nothing. No response. Were they just there on a fishing expedition to take our money saving ideas back to their bosses? In other words were they not being up front and honest in their negotiations? Despite hearing our cost saving ideas, are they going to force us to go on strike by not replying to our negotiating committee? I am sure they know that if we do strike, we will be causing great inconvenience to the families and teachers of the district. They also know it will cause anger towards us from the public. We do not wish to do this. We do not want to strike.

All we are asking is that the provincial government respect our work and respect us as human beings and citizens of this province.

The Richmond School District support workers have not had a raise in pay for four years and prior raises were .5 per cent in 2008, .5 per cent in 2007, and 1 per cent in 2006. We had no pay raises for a few years before that which means our pay has increased only two per cent in the last nine years. We are not “greedy.” The cost of housing, heat, hydro, food and transportation have increased by much more than 2 per cent in the past nine years. The taxes that pay for our municipal and provincial services are taken directly from of our paycheques before we receive our pay. That means we are important taxpayers. We also spend our paycheques locally, contributing to the prosperity of our communities. All we are asking is that the provincial government respect our work and respect us as human beings and citizens of this province. Do not force us to go on strike, our most extreme recourse. Return to the bargaining table before the scheduled start of this school year and speak honestly and openly with our negotiating committee. Thank you for your consideration. Sharon Schick Richmond

Encouraging kids to read

eading can have a profound impact on a child's life in and out of the classroom.

Reading can help a young student develop a more extensive vocabulary, and a study found that reading to young children promotes language acquisition, making it easier for them to learn a foreign language. That's a significant advantage for children growing up in a world that's increasingly global. But reading has benefits outside the classroom as well. Reading can provide an escape from the daily grind, which is something even today's youngsters can appreciate. Reading also is a great way for kids to relax and unwind while simultaneously giving their brains a workout. While many parents recognize the impact reading can have on

school. Reading to children early on is the first step toward fostering a love of reading kids will develop and continue throughout their lives. Many parents read to their children at night before bedtime, but any time of day will suffice. •Don't be discouraged if kids are not interested in books. While reading fiction can help develop a youngster’s imagination, parents should not be discouraged if kids don't want to read books. Reading the newspaper, magazines and even comic books can help kids develop strong reading skills and an extensive vocabulary and, in the case of comic books, inspire their imaginations. Young sports fans might be more inclined to read the sports page than a novel, so let them do so. Kids are more likely to embrace reading if what they're reading interests them, so encourage kids to read up on those interests, even if that reading does not involve picking up a book. •Get your youngster a library card. Thanks to the popularity of e-readers, many adults would be hard pressed to locate their local library if asked to do so. But visiting the library is a great way to encourage kids to read, especially if kids have their own library cards. Kids with their own library cards tend to look at visits to the library as shopping trips where they get to make their own choices about what they're taking home with them. And once kids reach a certain age, they can visit the library on their own.

enduring at least one outbreak of lice. Lice are tiny parasites that feed on the blood of their hosts. Head lice are about two to three millimeters in length (about the size of a sesame seed). A female louse can produce between seven and 10 eggs, known as nits, per day. The nits will hatch and repeat the process of the adults. Having lice is not an indication of poor hygiene. It just means you have come into contact with someone with lice and have contracted the parasite. Sharing brushes, pillows, hats, and headto-head contact with someone who has lice facilitates transmission. Many old wives’ tales discuss how to keep lice from getting into the hair. None of these methods are necessarily effective. Should lice climb aboard, it is essential to remove all of the nits and adult lice through careful combing and to reduce the numbers of lice until they die off. In extreme cases, a doctor may recommend a medicated shampoo. Mononucleosis: Infectious mononucleosis, commonly shortened to “mono,” is known as the kissing disease.

mitted through saliva. It can be spread through kissing, but also by sharing cups and straws or if saliva is expelled through sneezing or coughing. Symptoms of mono include fatigue, sore throat, fever, swollen lymph nodes, and a soft, swollen spleen. Mono is not often serious and is even less communicable than the common cold. However, it is advisable to keep a child home from school until symptoms have subsided. There is no specific method to treat mono, but doctors may suggest a combination of bed rest, pain relievers and

Most of the cases of oral herpes result from the virus herpes simplex 1, or HSV-1. According to the organization Herpes Online, the oral outbreak of herpes forms cold sores or fever blisters on the lips or inside of the mouth. While these blisters—and the HSV-1 virus itself—can be spread through kissing, most young children are diagnosed with oral

herpes after they have contracted it through the sharing of utensils. Sometimes parents inadvertently pass herpes on to their kids when they kiss them goodnight. Generally speaking, oral herpes is most contagious when a lesion or blister is present. When scabs have healed and there is no other symptom of the condition, then a person is much less likely to pass the virus to someone else. When a blister is present, the affected person should wash his or her hands frequently and avoid touching the lesion.

Garlic Fest returns Sunday to Sharing Farm by Martin van den Hemel Staff Reporter Volunteers and staff are busy preparing for The Sharing Farm’s 5th annual Garlic Festival, this Sunday, Aug. 25, at Richmond’s Terra Nova Park. Thousands of locals are expected to take in the all-ages fun from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. More than 1,000 pounds of organically-grown artisan garlic—Korean purple, Italian red and a porcelain hardneck variety known as Music—will be for sale, and there will be a cooking demonstration by West Restaurant, Graze Restaurant and the Blue Canoe Waterfront Restaurant. Entertainment will be provided by Sybaritic String Band, famous for their high-energy renditions of traditional, contemporary

and original fiddle tunes, and Brehdren, a seven-piece reggae/ ska/rock band. Earnest Ice Cream will be scooping garlic or salted caramel ice cream, and children will be entertained by honey-bee hives, a hay pile, crafts and more. There will also be a free workshop on growing your own garlic. While admission is free, there will be no parking available on site. There is free valet bicycle parking, and otherwise people can park at Spul’u’kwuks elementary school and make the short walk over. There’s also a free shuttle service running about every 20 minutes that will ferry people to and from the city’s works yard on Lynas Lane, where people can

park for free. Also up for sale are raffle tickets for door prizes donated by generous local merchants. Donations will also be gladly accepted for the new operations centre for the farm, which is nearly halfway to its goal of raising $170,000 for the project. Having raised more than $75,000 in cash and in-kind donations, the effort is just $30,000 short of being able to complete the garage to the lock-up stage. Anyone wishing to make a donation can visit tinyurl.com/ TheSharingFarm The Garlic Festival is expected to generate about $15,000, which goes toward the annual operations at the farm. The land has been provided by the City of Richmond, which also supplies the water and other assistance.

Dragon Boat Festival returns on Saturday The Steveston Dragon Boat Festival returns this Saturday to the South Arm of the Fraser River. The festival is expected to draw hundreds of spectators and 1,600 paddlers. Competition begins at 9 a.m., with boats starting at Britannia Shipyards and madly plying the waters in 250- and 500-metre races that end near Imperial Landing. Each boat is filled with a team of paddlers, a drummer and a cox who steers. Working in unison, the paddlers propel the boat with the aim of completing the course in the least amount of time. The Fraser River course offers lots of great viewing locations along the

EMPLOYMENT/EDUCATION

╭─╮

Sharon was born May 4, 1960 in Calgary, Alberta. As she grew up she enjoyed going back to the family homestead in Beechy, Saskatchewan to help her uncle with their dryland farming operation. She always loved to see a good crop and when the opportunity later presented itself she took over the family farming operation from her uncle. In1989 Sharon decided to pursue a passion of hers and become a teacher. She enrolled in the Medicine Hat community college education program and later transferred to the University of Lethbridge where she completed her Bachelors of Education in 1994. She later took a job with the Lethbridge College helping those who also had a desire to learn. As a teacher at the Lethbridge College she enjoyed inspiring others to succeed in school and in life. Having had to juggle the responsibilities of being a single mother and student, she had a deep underlying passion for helping people learn. She spent a large portion of her career focusing on helping others upgrade their education and reaching out to those in need. Sharon had a love for animals, was an avid gardner and enjoyed working in her yard. She loved reading and learning about new things. Sharon was well known for her positive attitude and always being an uplifting and positive influence in the lives of the people she associated with. She loved to spend time with her grandchildren and travel to Koocanusa where she would relax and soak up the sun. A celebration of her life was held on Monday, August 19, 2013 at 1:00 PM at Country Kitchen Catering, 1715 Mayor Magrath Drive, Lethbridge, Alberta with friends and family invited.

New season of strawberries in full swing Everbearing strawberry is the size of California varieties, but tastes like a sweet B.C. original by Matthew Hoekstra Staff Reporter

Michelle Titleborn shows off the bounty of a Richmond Country Farms’ field Tuesday.

Matthew Hoekstra photo

For strawberry lovers, it’s a beautiful sight: a field of hulking red berries clinging to bright green plants, with pickers trying to keep up with demand. It’s strawberry season at Richmond Country Farms—and it’s nearly September. This year the longtime Steveston Highway farm began growing everbearing strawberries, eschewing the widely known varieties that bear fruit in June. Richmond Country Farms’ new variety, the Albion, slowly started coming off the pesticide-free fields in July and is now in full production on the farm’s five acres. “It ramped up slowly up until now, and hopefully it’ll keep producing like this,” said farmer Lucas Hogler from the field Tuesday. “It looks like the size and appearance of a California berry, but the taste is like a local.” His dad Harry Hogler grew Junebearing strawberries for 50 years before giving up on the finicky fruit several years ago. It seemed that just before harvest each year, rain, hail or a plant virus would

ruin the crop. Now they’re back in production with the everbearing plant, which continues to produce sweet fruit until the fall frost. It is, however, a more labour intensive crop, and everbearing plants have a shorter lifespan than traditional varieties. But a longer growing season— and the possibility of local greenhouses competing with California in winter—are enough for some farmers to make the change. “A lot of people are starting to switch over to this style of strawberry,” said Lucas Hogler. “I think it’s going to open up the market. Local growers will be competing a bit more with the California berries.” Richmond’s Birak Berry Farm also grows everbearing strawberries, which are available for U-pick at 4200 No. 6 Rd. Some of Richmond's other small farms stock them as well.

"Local growers will be competing a bit more with the California berries.”
