Compost returns valuable nutrients to the soil to help maintain soil quality and fertility. Compost improves plant growth and lead to better yields.

Food waste and yard / garden waste together currently make up more than 28 percent of what we throw away, and should be composted instead. Making compost keeps these materials out of landfills where they take up space and release methane, a potent greenhouse gas.

Workshops are FREE and drop in.

Singles Speed Date Yoga Night
Saturday April 25, 2020  |  6:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Yoga PG, 200-513 Ahbau St

Just like regular speed dating, Yoga Speed Dating allows you to meet several people in a short amount of time, giving you just enough time to make and take a first impression.

There's only one place where you can get away with asking a stranger about his or her favourite position - and that's on a yoga mat. All jokes aside, it can be difficult to find quality people to date. For those who prefer quiet nights in the studio to rowdy nights at the bar, dating can be quite challenging. Yoga attracts like-minded, fit, fun loving people, but the silent structure of regular classes is not exactly the best way to connect with each other. This workshop is designed to creatively share a few minutes with someone new; get to know those single people in our community, and have a great time! Obviously you both already like yoga and are ready to make new friends. This is the perfect way to begin a great friendship or meet the partner of your dreams. All gender roles aside, these sequences are specially planned to be non-invasive and are geared towards yogis of any gender or level. Practice with a yoga partner mirrors much of what we are all looking for in a life partner - support, balance, and living in the moment. Singles are invited to share in a post yoga mingle at Moxie's Bar and Grill to enjoy 25% off food and non-alcoholic beverages.

*Price includes workshop and 25% off voucher for Moxie's Bar and Grill.

Instructor: Kelly Stone
Investment: $20 plus tax
Date and Time: Saturday, April 25th, 2020. 6pm - 8pm

Brush off the winter doldrums and embrace the sunshine at the season opener of Huble Homestead that celebrates the coming of spring!

Join us for the first event of the 2020 season to help us mark the changing of the seasons! Learn all about the different tasks a pioneer family like the Hubles would take on to ensure the rest of their year was a success. Help us welcome our new animals to the homestead - the sheep, rabbits, and chickens will be awaiting your arrival!

Watch or participate in old-fashioned activities such as the May-pole dance and making butter and ice cream. Find out which vegetables will be planted in the Huble garden this season, and learn about the heritage varieties of potatoes being grown in anticipation of this fall’s Potato Festival. On Sunday, flex your creative muscles in the scarecrow making contest for your chance to have your entry stay up in the Huble garden all summer long!

Reacquaint yourself with the historic site by taking a guided tour, and explore the buildings by taking part in a treasure hunt. Afterwards, relax with a picnic basket brought from home, or buy lunch from the BBQ. Don’t forget to check out the General Store and browse a new selection of locally made goods!

Huble Homestead Historic Site is a 30 minute drive north of Prince George, BC. Leave the city behind, and make your way up Highway 97, before turning off on Mitchell Road to continue another 6 kilometres down a well-maintained dirt road.

Huble Homestead is dog friendly and open daily for guided tours and shopping in the General Store. Enjoy a picnic or purchase lunch from the BBQ as you relax in the fresh air. Admission is by donation, with a recommended amount of $10.00 per family.

Round up the troops for a tromp in the great outdoors!

Pack a lunch, or purchase one from the BBQ, and spend a few hours of your Saturday at the homestead working at your own pace to complete the challenge.
