April 22, 2020 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Farm to School BC & Can You Dig It

Orchestrating a Growing Movement in the City of Victoria



On April 2nd , 2020, the City of Victoria passed a motion to 1) temporarily reprioritize the focus of some Parks Department capacity to grow food plants from seed in the municipal nursery and greenhouses for planting in the 2020 growing season, and 2) work with stakeholder organizations to develop a distribution plan for food plants, soil and educational resources to scale up food production and increase community resilience and food security.


Learn from Can You Dig It Provincial Manager Aaren Topley and City of Victoria Food System Coordinator Alex Harned about the process and implementation of this timely initiative and how it is supporting people in the city who have been affected by COVID-19. See more information on this CHEK News article, and in the City of Victoria council notes (p. 17-20).


This webinar is open to everyone, including community members, City Councillors, municipal staff, non-profits, etc.
