Do you have an interesting skill to share?

Be part of a community event at the Surrey Nature Centre Oct. 3.

Beekeeping

People with an interesting, useful or practical skill are being sought to host workshops at the 2015 Surrey Skill Share Fair.

Set for 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Oct. 3, the fair is described as “a place to share the things you’re interested in and passionate about with others.”

Those working on an interesting project that they think others might like to know about are also encouraged to submit a workshop proposal, online at www.skill-share.ca or by email to info@skill-share.ca

Last year, workshops included an introduction to beekeeping, fine oil painting, death doula, bike repairs and yoga classes.

Presenters – who do not have to be experts – will receive a thank-you gift and food.

The event, to be held at the Surrey Nature Centre (14225 Green Timbers Way), is open to the public and free to attend.

It is supported through the Oak Avenue Hub’s Neighbourhood Small Grant Program and in partnership with the Village Surrey Transition Initiative and the Surrey Nature Centre.

For more information, visit www.skill-share.ca or contact info@skill-share.ca
