Okanagan College Speakers Series

Join Eva Durance and Jennifer Vincent for an introduction to the Penticton Urban Agriculture Association (PUAA). The central objectives of PUAA, formed in 2010, are to educate people in how to grow some of their own food, assist those in need to have access to more locally produced, high-quality food, and promote support for local farmers. To that end, we have set up the Centre for Urban Agriculture (C.URB) on leased property in Penticton. Our presentation will discuss the need and possibilities for greater food security in our area, what we have accomplished so far, programs we are working on currently for 2013 and beyond, and how others can help us achieve our objectives.
