Garden Artisans: Fresh Food, Youth, Only Two Weeks Left!

EditorArticle, Shatford Centre / OSArts0 Comments

Only two weeks left to sign up your children or grandchildren with the Okanagan Boys & Girls Club Drop In Program that happens 4 hours Monday and Friday at the Shatford Centre which brings together vegetable growing and cooking with children and youth. For direct service on this contact Brett Needham at or call her at 250-490-6146. 

Youth, aged 10 – 17, meet to learn about horticulture and cooking with gourmet gardening leaders Eva Antonijevic, Victoria Ritchie (who will be going to university that last week) and Guest Chef Margie Colclough who will be featured on August 24th!  Eva, Victoria and Margie have worked in commercial kitchens and Eva will lead the youth team in the kitchen garden demonstrating what makes plants thrive.  

A grant from Telus has made this project possible allowing youth to learn the basics of the ‘garden to plate’ approach to food.
