Call for Volunteers - NEXT MEETING!!

In the next few weeks, the ground work for a very exciting public produce project will be launched and we are recruiting volunteers. The Kamloops Public Produce Project is a partnership between the Thompson Shuswap Master Gardeners, Kamloops Food Policy Council, Interior Health, the City of Kamloops and other interested community and business leaders.

We are extending this invitation to other community members interested in embarking on a unique garden project - one that will work towards putting an edible garden in the downtown core of Kamloops!

This project intends to:

- Reach out to members of community who may be interested in volunteering

- To create partnerships between the garden communities in Kamloops and the businesses throughout Kamloops

- To create awareness about gardening, food security, and community projects. 

Most of all, we want to dig in the dirt, plant delicious things, and enjoy one another's company. It is going to be a great season of planting, digging, building, and watching the garden grow so please be in touch with us if you are at all interested in joining our project. 

Our next planning meeting is on Monday March 7th (4:30 pm) at the Art We Are on 246 Victoria Street.

We would love to hear from you if you are interested in volunteering, if you have any questions, or if you have some ideas and inspirations. 

Please email us at publicproduceproject@gmail.com if you have any questions.
