Meetings

Meetings are at 7:30 PM on the first Thursday of every month at St. George’s Anglican Church in Fort Langley. The church is at 9160 Church Street, Fort Langley.  In June, we have a wind-down barbecue at a member’s home.  There are no meetings in July or August.  In December, we have a potluck social where members can sell their wares.

Every meeting includes an educational component where new information is shared about sheep, pasture management, feeding, health and much more. Come along, grab a coffee and cookie and enjoy the group. Help us be green, bring your coffee cup with you!
