COVID-19 RESPONSE

We are taking extra and every precaution to adress the ongoing Covid-19 virus.  We are ramping up all efforts to clean and sanitize our working environment, as well as asking everyone to take extra care to wash hands and self-distance from other individuals

PLEASE DO NOT ATTEND THE FARM WITH ANY COLD OR FLU SYMPTOMS.

If you are feeling unwell, stay home until you have seen a Dr. and are cleared to return.  Individuals feeling unwill will be sent home immediately.

**We are also asking that if any individuals, immediate family or members of the same household, have traveled through an international airport in the past two weeks, to please not attend for the recommended 14 day self-quarantine time frame.**

Not attending when you are unwell or may pose a risk to others is a way of respecting the other individuals at the farm by reducing their exposure to illness.

We understand this may cause some inconvenience at home, but is important for the consideration, safety, respect and health of others.

*Attendance is voluntary during the Covid19 concerns, your spot at the farm will not be affected*

Vocational Development for Adults with Diverse Abilities

Sunshine Farm is Certifed Organic, and uses this setting to offer Vocational Development Opportunities to Adults in the Community Living Sector.

The farm provides a mixed setting for hands on experience with a multitude of activities. We cater to a wide variety of interests such as cooking classes, music classes, literacy, computer, woodworking, greenhouse, equipment operation, etc..

The educational opportunities at the farm occur in the gardens, as well as  in the various buildings (shop, barn, greenhouses, etc.). The setting is diverse, offering a chance to learn about equipment, woodworking, plants, seed collection, greenhouse work, harvesting, labelling, math skills, weighing, packaging, as well as the classes mentioned above.

Opportunities based on interest and choice is the foundation of our philosophy.  Respecting the rights of the individual, and building self respect.

These opportunities are funded by Community Living British Columbia.
