Caran Jantzen book launch - Dec 12
Thursday December 12 | 7:00PM - 8:30PM
The Jantzen family’s homesteading journey has proved equal parts headache, humor, and heartache since leaving suburban life for a five acre homestead. Though the goal of Caran, her husband Mr. Green Thumb, and their four kids was simply greater food independence, they have gained much more in this five year process. Their accomplishments and growth has led them to discover what truly matters in life: relationships—relationships with their food, their environment, and with one another.
Caran Jantzen is a homesteader, mother, wife and writer on five acres in the Southwestern corner of British Columbia, Canada. Caran, her husband Mr. Green Thumb and their four sprouts enjoy working and learning together, both outside in their large vegetable garden and with the animals they raise, as well as in the kitchen processing the abundance of food that they produce. When not working around the homestead or on her laptop, Caran can be found relaxing with a good book, or entertaining family and friends while serving up their homegrown food.

Rocksalt Concert - Sat, Feb 8
Saturday Feb 8, 2019 | 7:00PM - 9:00PM
Hailing from British Columbia's Greater Vancouver Area, "Rocksalt" was formed: a collective of gentlemen, with a taste for dirty blues and bedrock lyrical content.
The soulful troubadours found common ground in their longing for the nostalgic. Capturing the fundamental elements of rock, it sounds as though the Four Horsemen of the Apocolypse are riding for the first time.
With their swooning harmonies and melodic diversity, they are a band not just to be heard, but to be remembered.
In a time where music is desperately looking to the past for answers, this humble brood of brothers have found their cornerstone. Be sure to catch them when they play, you won't regret it.
Band members are Steve Lang, John Jenkinson, Stojan Ninkovic, Steve Mitchenson and Gerard Doppenburg
