We like them apples! Bruce’s Country Market Apple Festival October 15 and 16, 10am-5pm

It’s Apple Festival time again. Every year we fill our front parking lot with bins and baskets of unusual varieties of apples from the Fraser Valley as well as Keremeos, Cawston, Okanagan, Saltspring Island. From the old-fashioned to the brand new, each variety has a unique appearance and flavour. You can sample as many kinds as you can fit in your belly. Once you think you know your apples well enough you can try the apple quiz, where whoever identifies the greatest number of varieties by sight wins a prize. Another treat is the warm apple crisp served with ice cream for only a dollar a bowl. And don’t forget to pick up a couple (or a dozen)

apple pies for your freezer. If you have an even sweeter tooth, do some sampling at the honey table. In addition to the apple tent, each year we bring in a truckload of giant pumpkins. The kids love to guess the weight of the biggest one. Of course there’s a prize for that, too. We’re looking forward to celebrating the delicious natural bounty of this great province with our community. Hope to see you there!

A New School Comes to Town The Environmental School Project

Not heard of it? Read on... The Maple Ridge/Pitt Meadows Environmental School Project is about learning and teaching differently. One of the significant differences is the classroom is outdoors in the natural world. Students are learning in real time, in nature, hands-on and in context. Through experiential learning, the students reconnect to the natural world and their environment, they explore areas of our community that are historically or culturally significant. Researchers will be following the progress of the new school, supported by SFU and a Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada Grant. Clayton Maitland the schools Coordinator writes… The Maple Ridge Environmental School Project began in Allco Park through an extraordinarily sunny week in September. An exciting time for the seeds of our community’s relationships to grow. The first day of the first week began with the families gathering together to recognize the earth, the river and the ancient cedar. We built respect for the place we were learning in and recognized the territories of Katzie and Kwantlen First Nation. Kwantlen First Nation Cultural Leader, Chris

Thomas and Friends welcomed us with story and song. We celebrated the opportunities and possibilities for learning in a place like Allco Park. Parents got together while students explored their learning environment. The students participated with the natural world in activities that emphasized community, reconnecting to the natural world and, as Chris Thomas said, “All our Relations”. Within exploring forest and river, storytelling, fort building, art, archery and other activities, learning flourished through the week. Every experience created a story. Trent, a grade 7 student, mentioned, “I have never enjoyed writing until now. I have stories to tell.” Many students reflect and then retell their experience to the community. Tatsiana, a parent, exclaimed, “They have a new light in their eyes.” Everyone is looking forward to enhancing possibilities. The first day. The first week. We are participating in our journey. Stories will unfold, be told and be remembered. To learn more about place-based, imaginative and ecological education see: http://school.sd42.ca/es.

Telegaph, 2010. The Irish Rovers celebrate 45 years since their 1966 debut recording, appropriately titled, The First of The Irish Rovers, with a television special and their 2011-Home in Ireland tour. It has been a magical journey from their first to their latest release, Gracehill Fair, which has had high praise from Celtic radio announcers from Belfast to Maui, and whose title track won SONG OF THE YEAR this month, on their home base of Vancouver Island at the VIMA Music Awards. They were also presented with the Island Classic Award honoring their 45 plus year career. Next year, The Irish Rovers will be filming their 2012 Holiday Christmas Special with special guests, at some of Canada’s most spectacular winter locations. Most of the Rovers’ albums over the last twenty years were recorded in both Canada and Ireland on their own record label, Rover Records, which is about to release their next album, “Drunken Sailor” for 2011. This release was spurred on by the fact that their recording of Drunken Sailor recently gained over 3 million hits on You Tube.

Nine from one, one for all... They call them selves ‘The Group of Nine’ Six years ago, 9 artists joined together to form a monthly critique group and later decided to become exhibition partners as well. Their meetings consist of sharing, discussing and evaluating each other’s work and offering suggestions for improvement. When asked, they will readily admit that their monthly meetings are as much about food and friendship, as they are about art. Each year, the group holds a 2-day sale to share the results of their work with friends, neighbours and art lovers.

This year’s will be the 6th such event and will feature a special challenge: Nine from One (Nine Paintings from One Image) For this, the artists chose an image of a flower, a fuchsia, courtesy of the photography of John Bale, one of the members’ husband. Each will create a painting from this image, but in their own style, genre and interpretation, using all different media. Since the members’ work ranges from super realistic to abstract, the results will vary wildly! The resulting paintings will be on display at this year’s sale.

Back row: Betty Coy, Joyce Campbell, Jo-Anne Lewis, Shirley Felgner and Margaret Bale Front row: Jane Duford Johnston, the late Jean Robinson, Florence Nicholson and Suzette Fram.

Golden Ears Community Co-op A Vision for a Cooperative Community Kimberly Lauzon Evident from the construction on every corner, our community is changing. But there are community organizations such as CEED (Centre for Education on Environment Development) and GETI (Golden Ears Transition Initiative) working on projects that will re-localize and strengthen our communities while growth and expansion threaten to weaken them.

I envision the Golden Ears Community Co-op as an important part of our sustainable and liveable future. If you are interested in more information about the Co-op please email me geccoop@gmail.com www.facebook.com/geccoop on meetup: Golden Ears Community Coop and Twitter.com/GECCOOP

GETI is a grassroots movement rooted in the Transition Town principles of permaculture, in which every aspect of an environment is equally important to the health and harmony of the whole. Through GETI, action groups are formed that work on different solutions to community based issues such as food sovereignty, transportation, pollution and the local economy. Golden Ears Community Co-op is one of those action groups. This group’s vision is to create a store front cooperative in Maple Ridge. Cooperatives are social enterprises that work at strengthening and re-localizing communities. They do this through creation of local, living wage jobs, by connecting the community and its local resources and by providing community space for events and workshops.

The Home Team Saints in Tool Belts!

Ellason Signature Homes (www.ellason.ca) has joined The Home Team to do a large scale renovation for the Kuris family in Maple Ridge which will be completed in just seven days. The concept was inspired by the Extreme Home Makeover TV show. On January 22, 2011 tragedy struck the Kuris family. Sam, a loving and dedicated husband and father was killed when crushed from a toppling forklift. Since this time Mrs. Kuris has been left to care for their three young children while facing the daunting prospect of addressing the many significant challenges her house presents. The Home Team’s goal is to accomplish one project each year. The selected recipients will be given a home makeover by a team of many skilled and unskilled volunteers, free of charge. The majority of home improvements will be made possible by donations of materials and labor by local businesses and contractors. The Home Team is a non-profit community outreach program of the Cornerstone Seventh Day Adventist Church whose motto is “repairing homes-changing lives”. For more information on The Home Team or to have a complementary DVD of this project please visit www.cornerstonehometeam.org

Show your support! Follow us on Facebook Search for: The Home Team
