Lady of the land makes presentation

Food Action Society of the North Okanagan hosts annual general meeting

A special guest highlights the Food Action Society of North Okanagan’s annual general meeting in November.

The guest speaker will be Linda Peterat, co-founder of the Intergeneratonal Landed Learning program introduced at a UBC farm in Vancouver 10 years ago.

The annual general meeting takes place Nov. 2 from 7 to 9 p.m. at the Hub Arts Collective, 2906-30th Ave., near the Towne Cinema.

Peterat was also co-ordinator of the intergenerational landed learning program offered at the Okanagan Science Centre for the past five years.

The award-winning program has impacted thousands across Canada, creating care for the environment, knowledge of food growing and farming, intergenerational friends, and healthy eating.

Peterat will reflect on the lessons learned over 10 years of program delivery and the ongoing successes and challenges of school gardening.

The public is welcome to join the Food Action Society for refreshments, visiting, and Peterat’s presentation prior to the election of new board members.

If you are interested in getting involved, the Food Action Society would love to meet you and discuss your interests.
