Eco-Freako and Sunshine Coast Wildlife have entered into a community partnership. We believe we need to start supporting each other and what better way than a mutually beneficial project. And these guys are an awesome organization working to help local species at risk and their habitats.
The Wildlife Project is responsible for bringing millions of dollars worth of funding to the Sunshine Coast, which is used on projects like: Building nesting beaches for the Western Painted Turtles; Research; Educational workshops at the Iris Griffiths Centre and the Sechelt Botanical Gardens; and The Land Stewardship Program which offers houses for bees, bats and owls to land owners.
We stock Sunshine Coast Wildlife bee, bat, and owl houses for sale at our Eco-Freako L'il Shop In The Woods, 1734 Pell Road, in Roberts Creek, BC. In the near future, visitors to the L'il Shop will be able to stroll on a visitors walk that gives some great visual examples of what the Sunshine Coast Wildlife Project can do saving our endangered wildlife here on the Coast.
In 2015, Eco-Freako created The Roberts Creek Directory Of Everything. Thanks to contributions from Vital Signs And Graphics, Mainstay Computing, SLEDRC (Sustainable Local Economic Development In Roberts Creek - that's Lesley), The Sunshine Coast Credit Union, The Gibsons Chamber Of Commerce, TerraTea, Mortal Coil Media, and the Roberts Creek Community Association, we produced a print and online directory of 166 community organizations, artists and artisans, farmers, and businesses in our awesome community on the Sunshine Coast.
The print version was distributed to every household in the Creek thru Canada Post and was available across the Coast at tourist centres and various local businesses. The directory is being given to all new residents to the southern Sunshine Coast by Welcome Wagon. We also produced a rack card that was distributed on BC Ferries promoting the directory and Roberts Creek in general.
We are working on the 2016 version which hopefully will be even more complete. Many people found it incredible there were 166 listings in our first edition given the fact there are only 1700 households in Roberts Creek. We're all hidden in the woods. That's why you need the directory to find us all.
Slow Sundays In The Creek is a great opportunity to mingle with local merchants and enjoy locally produced artisan delights and farm fresh produce as well as enjoy some fantastic music.
It starts at 11am with The Heart Market, located in "downtown" Roberts Creek, behind the Library. The market runs from 11a-2p and at 2:30, there's live music from local musicians till 4pm. Lots of other activities are planned so made a day of it in the Creek. Slow Sundays run from June 26th to September 18th, 2016 (with the exception of Sunday, August 21st)
