Going to Canada 2007
Day 8: Cawston

The place where we’re staying is called Mariposa Organic Farm.

It’s in Cawston, which is about 20 minutes drive from Keremeos.
The farm was started 1962 and was one of the first organic farms in Canada.
They grow vegetables like squash, cucumbers, tomatoes, eggplants, lettuce.
They sell the vegetables to retail outlets.

We’re staying in this little cabin by the river.
It’s really warm here but you can see snow on the mountains in the distance.
You can’t swim in the river at the moment because of all the melting snow – but later on in summer you can.

Apparently it almost never rains here, so the sprinklers are on all the time.
The water comes from a well.

This morning our job was weeding and picking lettuce in the hothouse.
We had the afternoon off and in the evening we planted some tomatoes.
