What’s 143 years old, last three days and packs enough fun to entertain 20,000 people? You guessed it: The Cowichan Exhibition, September 9th through 11th.

This year’s theme is Trees of the Valley and we couldn’t be more excited about it.

The PFLA is setting up an info booth and we look forward to connecting with folks as passionate about trees, farming and agriculture as we are.

We’ll have lots of information about private managed forest land in BC, seedling samples you can take home, a colouring contest for kids, and yes, wait for it, the PFLA is the proud sponsor of the zuchini racing competition.

We know it’s a challenge, but we’re up for it. We’ve put together a team of experts, we’re gathering supplies, calculating velocities and priming our prize zucchinis.

We expect it’ll be a highlight of the weekend and look forward to seeing you there. If for some reason you can’t make it, fear not, we’ll be sure to post the results here on the blog.

Hope to see you there!

If this sounds like as much fun to you as it does to us, let us know. We need volunteers to help with the info booth, the colouring contest and, of course, the zucchini racing event.

Please contact Rod Bealing for details. Happy to have you aboard!
