What's Growing @ Mary's Garden?

15649 40th Avenue

Our own nugget potatoes will be ready later this week/early next week! 
The broccoli  and cauliflower are growing nicely.

For fun we planted some tomato varieties in our greenhouse. Our Mary’s Own No Spray tomatillos are starting to be ready - we don’t have very many (handfuls here and there) but they are pretty cool! We picked some for the store today. 

Thank you for all of the positive feedback on the changes to our market! We appreciate all of your support! It’s been pretty quiet so we hope things pick up - we have fields FULL of fresh veggies growing for you! We hope to see you at the farm! 

Please like and share this post and help spread the word about Mary’s Garden! 

Well done British Columbians on flattening the curve! As we join the Phase 2 restart plan, we want to make a few announcements for our relaunch into dine-in:

- At shutdown we laid off all 15 of our permanent staff, and were unable to hire the 20+ casual and seasonal staff we normally would have for the summer. Thanks to the support of our community when we opened for take-out, there was 6 rehired. Now going into “dine-in service” we are back up to a team of 9. 

- We know this year is going to be hard for every business on the beach, and likely a loss in many ways. But what we can do is provide good jobs, great food, and a lot of gratitude to everyone that has made this possible. (We love you!)

- Our take out menu has been revised and is available on our website.

- We did a full menu revision and have two menus each day, Lunch and Dinner. 

- Dinner menu 4pm-close is now a premium feature menu that will update often. This menu will have some of our greatest hits, and some new specials that will knock your sombrero off.

- Our WorksafeBC Covid-19 plan has been implemented, and we will continue to improve it as we identify opportunities to enhance the safety and overall comfort of our guests.

- Parking is still a challenge at the beach, and as such reservations are very limited in availability. We strongly encourage you to plan ahead for parking or walk down to the beach if you can. 

- Our operating hours are extending. 12-9pm Sunday through Thursday, and 12-10pm Friday and Saturday. Weather conditions may modify this schedule, call ahead if you’re coming down later in the evenings to be sure.

City of Surrey is looking for submissions by Surrey based Artists.
Deadline May 25

With all the buzz around pubs being able to open as of yesterday, we figured it was time to reach out and give you the straight goods right from the horse's mouth. 

While we have appreciated your support with our modified take out business, and realize that you are super excited to get back to pub life at Sawbucks, we choose to put our customers safety first. 

All of the 'regulations' the health and safety board has been putting out changes daily, and multiple times a day. To put it mildly, it has been confusing, and inconsistent.

We were ahead of the curve and already ordered many new items to ensure the health and safety of our guests (temperature guns, medical grade disinfectant and PPE, sanitation stations etc.). However, even with all that we have done to prepare, we feel that this May 19th open date for pubs and restaurants is a bit soon. 

So please bare with us for a couple more weeks, keep supporting us through our NEW TAKE OUT & DELIVERY options by visiting www.sawbuckspub.com, and we will see you for a pint VERY soon! 

If we decide to open up the doors earlier, make sure you join our VIP email list (link in the previous post) to get the news first. 

Grow your own food while supporting your local garden shops.

Check out our online marketplace for Surrey stores who deliver.

Laura's Coffee Corner

UPDATE****

Wanted to give you all a heads up as many have been inquiring as to when we will be opening up are tables for seating. With this comes some rules enforced by WorkSafeBC. I am working on a COVID-19 Plan which needs to be posted on site, practiced and enforced. I am limited to half the seating I was allowed, food will be in to go containers only as this reduces transmission, food orders will be called out and to be picked up at the designated areas as no delivery of food service to tables . 

Also, we ask your patience between seatings as staff will need to take time to clean and sanitize chairs, tables between customers. 

This also does limit the amount of staff I am allowed on site to ensure their safety and our customers, unfortunately our hours will remain the same for now Monday to Saturday 8am to 2pm, Closed Sundays. 

Will let you know when seating is available.

Thank you

Laura

You can add these annual events to the cancelled list -

 

The Centre for Child Development is committed to ensuring the safety of the children and families they serve, their supporters, and staff in the midst of COVID-19. As all large events in BC are being postponed or cancelled, The Centre has decided to cancel their 19th Annual Run, Walk and Roll as an in-person event.

Each June, this event brings together hundreds of participants, including children with special needs, their families, volunteers and supporters to raise funds for much needed equipment and programs.
Although the in-person event isn’t able to proceed, all our friends and supporters can join the Surrey Fire Fighters’ Charitable Society and the North Surrey Lions and continue to support The Centre for Child Development through online donations: https://donate.cdfbc.ca/.

Canada Cup Softball @ Softball City July 3-12, 2020

Cancelled for 2020 season

 

With careful consideration, we’ve decided to postpone Surrey Fusion Festival to July 2021. We understand that circumstances have changed this year, and we appreciate your continued support through these difficult times. 

We thank our many partners, sponsors and participating food & cultural pavilions, alongside thousands of loyal attendees for your ongoing support. 

Stay tuned for a special Surrey Canada Day announcement next week!

 

Beach House Theatre - Crescent Beach

To our Beach House Family, Friends, and Supporters,

These are historic and unprecedented times we are all living in. We hope all of you are staying strong, positive, and healthy as we all live through this strange and unsettling pandemic.

We wanted to let you know that we have spent the past months waiting, watching and hoping that we could somehow proceed with our ninth season. We are sad to report that, given the current situation, it will not be possible for us to produce our event this August.

See you in 2021.

NEW SERVICE starting May 15th we will be providing water taxi and delivery to the gulf Islands as an essential service.

We will also bring prescription medications medical devices Hardware or anything else you order through us. If it's Transportation you require you can arrange that through us as well.

During this crisis we are missing our Blue Frog Community so much. We have been attending to little projects around the studio, cleaning, and coming up with new and innovative ideas - or so we think.

We hope that you are all doing well and would love to know what you have been up to. How are you getting your music fix during this pandemic?

All the concerts have obviously been postponed and the bands are itching to play again! Once we get the green light from Dr. Bonnie Henry we will be hopping right back into it. Some concerts have already been rescheduled and others are in the works. If you have tickets to any postponed concerts, please have patience and hold on to your tickets for now; it would help us get through the total shut down that we are all enduring. We will take care of you if you cannot make the new concerts when things start rolling.

It may be that we will be allowed to have fewer people at the studio during a concert. If that happens we will adjust accordingly and add more shows to accommodate. Just think, no line ups at the bar!

We appreciate and we are so very grateful for all your support over the last ten years. On to the next ten, no matter how it looks. Please hang in there with us. We will not let you down.

Let us know how you are doing.

Barrique Fried Chicken?

Pre-orders for April 28 - May 2 are now live. For all the details, and to order, check out https://www.barriquerestaurant.ca/.

In mid-March, Barrique made the difficult decision to close the restaurant completely for safety reasons. One month later, they decided to open a to-go fried chicken joint called Barrique Fried Chicken (#BarriqueFC). The concept is simple: delicious fried chicken made with great birds, amazing sides, awesome beer & wine, and safe curbside service.

 

 

I’ve been fortunate to collaborate with a local psychologist and counsellor to help create a resource line for people needing to know what local SS/WR mental health resources are still available during the pandemic.

In recognition of the multiple challenges many are facing, this resource also includes a referral system to local counsellors who have generously volunteered to offer 1-3 free sessions for isolated seniors and people who work as essential services (grocery stores, take out, gas stations etc).
604-531-0361
Please check it out!!

Also please know that many of us psychologists and counsellors are offering therapy through telehealth. So mental health support is still available!

Provincial Help For Small Businesses

Township 7 Delivers Wine for a Cause

In light of the tumultuous times, many hospitality workers are facing severe financial distress.  To help meet their needs Township 7 is donating $10 per online order to the BCHF (minimum 4 bottles per order).  Included in this offer, Township 7 is providing free delivery across Canada.  The wines are available online under the code SUPPORT10 (at checkout).

 

New Rules For Bus Riders

Commencing next week, TransLink will be limiting seating on buses in Metro Vancouver to promote physical distancing. Roughly half the seats on board buses will have signage installed to indicate that those seats are to be left vacant, which will allow for extra space between customers. If the new seated capacity is reached, bus operators will not make any further stops to collect passengers, who will have to wait for the next bus.

Given declining ridership is resulting in far fewer passengers on the system, it’s not expected these changes will impact travel times on the majority of bus routes. However, commuters who use busier routes should consider building in additional travel time and consider their need to travel, particularly during rush hours. Public transit remains crucial for thousands of essential service workers in the region, including those in the healthcare sector.

TransLink is also undertaking other initiatives to promote physical distancing:
Customers are being asked to board buses using the rear doors where possible, with the exception of those requiring mobility assistance.
Seating close to bus operators is already limited on certain buses.
An education campaign has been launched asking customers to allow extra space for fellow passengers when on board transit.
Coast Mountain Bus Company is accelerating installation of operator protection barriers on all buses.
HandyDART has suspended fare collection in order to promote physical distancing between operators and customers.
Customers are not able to use seats close to crew on SeaBus vessels.

Any updated travel advice and information will be provided via Transit Alerts and on Twitter.

Additional information specific to COVID-19 can also be found at translink.ca/covid19.

All of the above measures will remain in place until further notice.

Province Clamps Down

Mike Farnworth, Minister of Public Safety and Solicitor General, is using extraordinary powers under a state of provincial emergency to keep British Columbians safe, maintain essential goods and services, and support the Province’s ongoing response to novel coronavirus (COVID-19).

“B.C. is in a strong position to effectively respond to and recover from the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Farnworth. “Informed by the direction of the provincial health officer, we’re taking these critical steps to keep our communities safe, goods moving and essential service workers supported.”

Using the extraordinary powers under the Emergency Program Act, the minister is issuing a series of ministerial orders to ensure a co-ordinated response to COVID-19 across all levels of government for the duration of the provincial emergency. These include:

  • Supply chain: Establishing a new Provincial Supply Chain Coordination Unit to co-ordinate goods and services distribution; taking a more active role in co-ordinating essential goods and services movement by land, air, marine and rail; and suspending any bylaws that restrict goods delivery at any time of day.
  • Protecting consumers: Banning the secondary resale of food, medical supplies, personal protective equipment, cleaning and other essential supplies; and restricting quantities of items purchased at point of sale. 
  • Enforcement: Enabling municipal bylaw officers to support enforcement of the provincial health officer’s orders for business closures and gatherings, in line with offences under the Public Health Act.
  • Travel: Ensuring all passenger and car-ferry services provide minimum service levels and priority access for residents, and essential goods and workers.
  • Protecting B.C.’s most vulnerable: Making it easier to support critical services for vulnerable people, like food banks and shelters.
  • Co-ordination: Suspending local states of emergency specific to the COVID-19 pandemic, except for the City of Vancouver; giving municipal councils the ability to hold more flexible meetings to expedite decisions; and co-ordinating potential use of local publicly owned facilities, like community centres, for self-isolation, testing, medical care, warehousing and distribution

IMPORTANT: Changes to City of White Rock solid waste collection   


The City of White Rock continues to provide solid waste collection during the COVID-19 global pandemic.
To protect the public and employees, the following important measures are now in place. No loose items will be accepted.  

The following items must be placed in closed, tightly-sealed garbage bags in the regular garbage collection: 

  • Personal hygiene products 
  • Used tissues 
  • Cleaning cloths 
  • Face masks 
  • Gloves 
  • Similar items used for cleaning and personal use 

Someone sick in your home 

If you or someone in your home is sick, all personal waste (garbage, recycling, food scraps) must be double-bagged and tightly sealed and placed into the regular garbage collection.  

Green bin materials 

Food scraps/food waste must be wrapped in newspaper, paper towel or kraft bags (no plastic bags) and placed in the green bin at the curb. Yard waste does not need to be wrapped. Kraft bags with yard waste can go directly to the curb.

Reminder 

Wipes are not flushable. Please place them in your sealed garbage bags. 

We’re in this together 

Please remember to be kind to one another, to help those in need, and to reach out to friends and family using social technology.
We are all in this together, and we will get through this together.
