Darrin Nordahl's Visit - May 4 and 5

Darrin's visit to Kamloops was busy, to say the very least. A radio show, walking tours, community garden bonanzas, a media blitz, seminars, lunch dates, school district meetings, a public talk, a stakeholders' meeting, more media, dinners - all in two days, followed by a 6 a.m. flight on Friday morning. 
We cannot thank Darrin enough for his abundance of energy and enthusiasm and his knowledge and passion for his cause. He got our community excited about growing food and making our city a more food secure place - maybe even the most food secure city in Canada (eventually)? Thanks for everything Darrin.

  1. The pleasure was all mine. Thank you Laura, Elaine, Kendra, Rob, and Dave. I will be using your public produce project to teach communities throughout North America about Kamloopsians forward-thinking strategies to reduce food insecurity. Your project is a great example of what can be achieved with boundless energy and generous helpings of tenacity. - Darrin
