There will be information on starting seeds and growing sprouts (affordable fresh winter food and so easy, too!!!) Two Kootenay seed producers will be selling their locally grown seeds (Stellar Seeds and Suzanne Miller), so you can stock up on everything you’ll need for the coming season.  We’ll have free seed to give away and space for trading seeds with others and chatting about all things gardening.

Twisted Roots Community Greenhouse will be present, selling CSA shares for their upcoming season, and accepting new volunteer applications.

We’ll be organizing an order for heritage chicks and mason bees (from Ellisons and West Coast Seeds, respectively), so if you want to start raising chickens this spring or increase your garden’s pollination success with mason bees, this is the place to start!

Hope to see you there!

‘Fields Forward’ for greater food security January 15, 2016

‘Fields Forward’ is a new partnership program to boost economic development in the agri-food sector and improve local food security in our area.

This new ‘Fields Forward’ initiative from the Community Directed Funds Committee of Creston and District (Yahk to Riondel) was launched January 11th with a two day training and collaborative action planning conference in Creston involving food groups, producers, entrepreneurs, as well as local, provincial and federal government representatives.  11 people from the East Shore attended, including 4 members of Food Roots.  Food Roots hopes to be part of the Community Impact Team that is now being formed for the next phase of the initiative.
