Growing Fresh Ideas about Kootenay Food Together
The West Kootenay Permaculture Co-op is undertaking a four-part project focused on strengthening and supporting the local food movement. We are examining food issues specific to our region and creating events that encourage growth of West Kootenay food economies. We will be celebrating all of the work that has brought us to where we are now. This is a "call for action~ honoring the requests of countless agricultural reports and their authors.
Multiple FOOD HUB events are planned for the entire West Kootenay region over the next few months, culminating with a grand two-day event in Nelson in early April; a true celebration of our local food system! In April, FESTIVAL + FEAST our public event, will feature the Lexicon of Sustainability art show, food films, education, local producers sampling Kootenay made foods, speakers, workshops and a local seasonal feast in recognition of our food shed. FORUM + FEAST a stakeholders' event, held the following day, will be a solutions based action-driven facilitated workshop.
It will wrap up with a cash bursary, democratically awarded to various "ready for action" projects that address the needs of our community. All of the profits from the public event will go right back into this bursary fund, which is why we need your financial support.
