What’s Up in the Fraser Valley During September

September is basically January; a fresh start, new beginnings, adventures, change of schedules… Things begin to slow down, the leaves start falling and you order your PSL daily instead of an iced americano. Summer activities will soon be a thing of the past as it gets too cold to spend afternoons in the lake and evenings around the campfires. School starts, routines get back on track. It all sounds a little dull, doesn’t it? 

Here are a few fun activities happening around the Fraser Valley this September to keep things rockin’. 

Summer Solstice Soirée en Blanc at The Kraus Berry Farm & Estate Winery

What better way to welcome the Summer than with a soirée?  Join us June 21st at Krause Berry Farm and Estate Winery for an evening filled with fun, food, wine, dancing live music and more!

The Summer Solstice Soirée en Blanc is a magical way to celebrate the longest day of the year and the beginning of Summer all while helping local families in need! All proceeds will go to provide support to local families over the Christmas holidays this year through Think Generously Society. Last year we supported 32 families through our unique fundraising events! Lets aim to beat this number this year!

Organic Shops In The Fraser Valley

For starters, let’s dive into some of the reasons organic eating is a good and healthy decision to make! Organic foods do not have the following;  

  • pesticides 
  • herbicides 
  • fertilizers from synthetic ingredients or sewage sludge 
  • ionizing radiation 
  • growth hormones  
  • antibiotics 

Which is pretty amazing considering we live in a world ruled by processed foods.  Organic crops are also more nutritious for you and are usually GMO-free! All the more reason to shop organic!  We aren’t here to convert you or anything, but we are here to keep you in the loop when it comes to.. well… anything positively affecting your lifestyle! With that, here are a few of our favourite local and organic shops in the Fraser Valley!
