Festival of Trees

Farmer Construction is proud to be a part of the Festival of Trees in support of BC Children’s Hospital Foundation again this year.
The Farmer Team donned their tacky vests and hard hats to decorate the Farmer tree at the Bay Centre. Not only is our goal to build community, we want to inspire and help build the dreams of children and their families. By making a donation to the Farmer tree, or any of the trees at the Festival of Trees, you are helping to make these dreams a reality.
Come visit us at the Bay Centre until January 3, 2023 and view all the beautiful trees in support of BC Children’s Hospital Foundation. You can also visit our fundraising page here – https://fundraise.bcchf.ca/fundraisers/farmerconstruction.

Farmer Family Picnic

On Saturday, August 13th, we held our Farmer Family Picnic at Beaver Lake Park.  We had approximately 87 adults/kids show up, as well as a couple of future Farmer Team members for a fun-filled day of games, contests, crafts, bubble balls, and paddleboarding, just to name a few of the activities.  The weather cooperated and a great time was had by all thanks to all the volunteers – Teresa, Sean, Gerald, Kate & Hye-Jin, Jo-Anne, Darrell’s muscles, Andrei, and Anita, as well as Angus & Sue and Louis & Amanda for sharing their paddleboards/kayaks.   Looking forward to seeing everyone at next year’s Farmer Family Picnic!
