“It’s an event for everyone,” says Rob Diether, director with the Horse Lake Community Farm Co-op.
The Fifth Annual Treats and Treasures Sale and Fundraiser will be held at the 100 Mile United Church, located at 43 Dogwood Ave., in 100 Mile House on Dec. 7 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
As well as fresh produce, there will be recycled garage sale items, handcrafted goods, baked goods, homemade preserves and specialty coffee and teas available.
“Our co-op buys green coffee beans and we roast them,” Diether explains.
“We always have great, freshly roasted coffee there. It’s kind of a connoisseur coffee. People enjoy that.”
The sale is an important fundraiser for the Horse Lake Community Farm Co-op, a group of farmers and concerned citizens operating a 133-acre heritage farm property with the objective of protecting the agricultural and ecological integrity of lakeshore acreage, he notes.
“We also have other vendors at [Treats and Treasures] as well. There’s art, local crafts, herbal medications. We have some folks who come up from 70 Mile with a bunch of fair trade, raw cane sugar.”
The group is currently accepting donations for a silent auction.
