The CASA garden is located at the Sooke, Child, Youth & Family Centre, 2145 Townsend Road, Sooke. The garden is part of various programs that use the garden to teach, to heal, to enjoy and to grow nutritious food for those in need. We hope your visit will be a bit of time for you to relax, wander and enjoy whatever the garden brings. If you wish to volunteer in the garden please call, or drop in and see, the receptionist at 250 642-6364, the Sooke Child, Youth and Family Centre, she will pass the message on.
Our Club accepted the "Lioness Bridging Program" offered by Lions International and "bridged" our "Lioness Club" (formerly Sooke Lioness Club) in September 2003 which became our official charter date. There were 25 original members of the newly formed Sooke Lioness Lions Club. On July 1, 2010 we re-named our club to the Sooke Harbourside Lions Club.
In 2011, 41 members are very active in the Sooke community, but work closely with Lions and Lioness Clubs in Multiple District 19 (British Columbia, Washington, and Northern Idaho).
In the SENĆOŦEN language, the word T'Sou-ke is the name of the Stickleback fish that live in the estuary of the river. Exposure to Europeans through the Hudson's Bay Company saw the name changed first to Soke and then Sooke. That English name is now common and is used for many things including the name of our neighbouring town, the river and basin, the main road.
