Although much of Delta's land is farmed, residents have little opportunity to purchase locally grown produce or to see how our food is grown. The Earthwise Farm raises public awareness about the value of local food production and learn about the environmental benefits of sustainable farming practices.

About Boundary Bay Park

Thousands of migratory birds feed and rest at Boundary Bay. We will venture onto the dyke trail and explore the area.
