On what was quite possibly the wettest and coldest May 28th on record, some 150 Telus employees came out to Loutet Farm last Saturday to lend a hand, and celebrate Telus’s donation of a new hoop house to Loutet Farm. Read all about the amazing work done and the fantastic people that made it happen!  Thank you to everyone that made it happen!

Thank you Port Metro Vancouver! 


This spring Port Metro Vancouver joined in to support our Sharing Gardens! These gardens grow fresh healthy produce for the people in our community that need it most; along the way we build community and food growing skills in our community. 

This is a new relationship with Port Metro Vancouver, and we're excited to be one of the community enhancing projects that they support.  
 


 
We are proud to be a Good Food Organization working towards a healthy and fair food system in alliance with Community Food Centres Canada. We are joining a  growing network of like-minded organizations across  Canada who share a commitment to offering healthy and dignified food programs in their communities.
