Bears,our Farm and Minnehkada Park, 2012(please lets not have a repeat of this!)
Bears and the Park, to those of you who enjoy our private road 365 days a year, please help us save Bears from a future of Death! As the Bears become less and less Scared of the Public, because you don't wear Bear Bells, you stop on the road, you feed them and have your children get close so you can take a picture. They became a dangerous Bear! This leads them to end up in Poco or Coquitlam eating Garbage and a Certainty of Death. We have along with the Conservation officers, Bear aware, the City of Coquitlam and The GVRD, have decided the best way to protect the bears is to keep the public off Oliver road for the Month of August. This will allow us The Farmers to pick our Crops and have all the Berries cleaned off. The Bears then will move onto more food area, which is hopefully up Burke Mountain. For the selfish few who believe that it is their god given right to use Oliver road for your walk, run or bike ride, with no regards for the wild life that live here, you should be ashamed of yourselves....The Road is CLOSED to all Public for the BEARS Protection and I am sure you can walk, run, or cycle somewhere else for one month.
To the Person who has decided to take down our signs, place all the No parking signs in the Ditch is truly the person who has ruined this for everyone, because he has decided that his walk, run or Cycle is more important than the Park itself. Congrats
Locally Grown Fresh BC Blueberries
Blueberries are the fruits of a shrub that belong to the heath family, which includes the cranberry and bilberry as well as the azalea, mountain laurel and rhododendron. Blueberries grow in clusters and range in size from that of a small pea to a marble. They are deep in color, ranging from blue to maroon to purple-black, and feature a white-gray waxy "bloom" that covers the surface serving as a protective coat. The skin surrounds a semi-transparent flesh that encases tiny seeds.
The highest antioxidant capacity of all fresh fruit: Blue Berries, being very rich in anti oxidants like Anthocyanin, vitamin C, B complex, vitamin E, vitamin A, copper (a very effective immune builder and anti-bacterial), selenium, zinc, iron (promotes immunity by raising haemoglobin and oxygen concentration in blood) etc. boost up your immune system and prevent infections. Once your immunity is strong, you won’t catch colds, fever, pox and all such nasty viral and bacterial communicable diseases
A new University of Michigan Cardiovascular Center study suggests that blueberries may help reduce belly fat and risk factors for cardiovascular disease and metabolic syndrome.
