Dear Friends of ROSE and Sunnivue:
In the grand old tradition that goes way back to last year, Sunnivue will be hosting a harvest barbecue event at the farm on Saturday, October 14, 10:00-4:00.
Ralph will again be in charge of the barbecue as well as taking a turn on the dance floor (so you can be sure that both the food and the music will be great).
The Sunnivue store will be open, and don’t be surprised if wagons turn up to transport children of all generations through the bush.
In addition, here’s how Chris describes the new hiking trail that he has just finished working on:
Starting at the store walk around the barn and see and enjoy the organic chickens and turkeys and ducks running around (see picture below of one of the handsome turkeys - thanks to Sheila Chick for the photo).......follow the laneway towards the river .... To your right you can see the Christmas tree plantation and to the left the old water buffalo pond now used by waterfowl, shore birds and amphibians.....continue down the laneway to just before the river where an orange blaze to your left directs you onto the new trail......the trailtakes you gently up and through some cedar and pine ...it then continues along on the higher ground offering some very scenic lookouts to the river below .... Eventually it comes to a fairly steep ravine which is a drain to the river....the trail continues down into the ravine and levels out for a while through some riparian flood plain.... Then it makes its way back up the other side of the ravine and into a pine plantation and then ties into the main trail which takes you back toward the sugar bush and the bridge Ralph built .....
And please remember that the farm store continues to be open each Saturday during the harvest season, 10:00-4:00 as usual, and with the usual good food and good cheer.
All best wishes,
Sally for ROSE and Sunnivue
