Wildsight Kimberley Cranbrook is pleased to host our 6th Annual Harvest Party at the Kimberley Community Garden (aka Open Gate Garden) on Rotary Drive. Sunday September 22, starting at 1pm.

As in previous years, we are organizing a variety of activities for the event including our famed zucchini races, a community harvest potluck and the Spud Bucket Showdown weigh in.

Here are some details you may want to know:

  • This is a FREE family friendly event where everyone is welcome.
  • When it comes to zucchini racing – participants are encouraged to bring the best competition your family garden has to offer.
  • Enjoy the garden’s harvest in the form of many delectable foods, and we invite you to bring your own potluck item to share.
  • There will be games and festivities!
  • Bring your spud buckets and the Kimberley Helping Hands Food bank will be weighing them to find a winner!
  • The Kimberley Pick and Press Event will be wrapping up as the party starts. Help make some apple juice and see how the equipment works from 10am – 2pm at the same location.
  • As a prelude to the Harvest Party, Wildsafe BC is also hosting the following events at the park beside the garden:
    • Electric Fencing Demo – 11 AM – 12 PM with Gillian Sanders – Grizzly Bear Solutions
    • Bear Spray Demo – 12 PM – 1 PM with Danica Roussy – WildSafeBC

The Kimberley Community Garden is a public, edible garden for the whole community to enjoy. Sharing is the foundation of the garden, as it is with our Harvest Party!
