This May we’re hosting a fireside AGM to explain the story of Zero Ceiling, the seed that was planted back in 1997 and the seeds we’ll be busy planting this year. Join us for dinner around the warm fire, beneath the towering cedars, sitting shoulder to shoulder with friends.
Zero Ceiling’s Fireside AGM
When you plant seeds, you have nothing more than a small kernel of hope, the blessings of some good food, water, and lots of warmth, and the land to nurture it. You plant the seed in good faith, knowing that nothing is guaranteed. But with enough love and tender understanding, you may watch that seed blossom.
The seed of Zero Ceiling was planted 26 years ago, with nothing but a vision of bringing young people from Vancouver up to Whistler to enjoy a day in this incredible environment we call home. In winter, they could ski or snowboard and in summer they could hike or bike. This seed has grown and sprouted into something massive, and it’s because of the love and nurturing given by the community that we grow. We were privileged to witness this seed grow, and maybe one day, we’ll get to sit and enjoy the beautiful garden, eating the sweet fruit and delighting in the flowers and vines. Maybe we won’t get to see it, but that doesn’t make planting those seeds anything other than an act of kindness, love, and hope.
Join us at our fireside AGM on May 5th, 4-6pm at the Squamish Líl̓wat Cultural Centre.
“Community” Artwork by Dave Petko – Raffle
At our 25th birthday party, local artist Dave Petko created a unique painting for Zero Ceiling live from the event. “Community” was inspired entirely by our organization and our story. He incorporated our connection with the land and linked it to the theme of planting seeds and watching them grow into a forest of love, hope and balance.
He produced nothing short of a masterpiece and we love how much it reflects Zero Ceiling. But, we would love someone in the community to have it. We’re raffling the artwork off with tickets on sale now! Buy a ticket and have the chance to win this incredible piece of art. The raffle will be drawn at the closing of our Fireside AGM, and one lucky winner will be the new owner.
Tickets on sale soon!
