Bowling lanes will be turned on March 23 at LVCC ~ from 6-8 pm ~ families welcome!
First, the winter stock is all gone! Thanks so much to everyone who tried my mushrooms and supported me over the last few months. It’s really been a gratifying experience to try something new and crazy and feel like your community is wholeheartedly behind you. So thanks 🙂
Next, big plans afoot for the Summer season. New outdoor greenhouse going in, new varieties, a booth at the Kaslo Saturday Market and lots more. Production will be down for a few months while we get all this going, but we’ll be back and way bigger and cooler at the start of July.
…This is what I did today. Agar mixed and poured into 40 Petri dishes. The building blocks of new life, and exciting things to come…
Thanks so much everyone!

Good News: Johnsons Landing is FINALLY getting support to deal with the on-going hazard that affects their ability to access water. This is a four year process that is a huge relief to see results on!! The Upper Gar Creek project has a total cost of $320,000 of which $107,000 will come from local sources, and the rest is split between the Provincial and Federal governments.
Bad news: Area D’s exciting Rural Dividend project that was to be a new job incubator was not successful. While our provincial counterparts are eager to see us apply again in April, we are waiting to hear what they want changed. In the meantime, I am hoping to still assist our farmers with the 2017 season. I cannot plan for this until I hear back from the Rural Dividend program. I have been adamant that the season will not wait, so fingers crossed I have some information to share soon.
There is a lot more to report, including on-going negotiations to see broadband successfully installed in Area D thanks to the very hard work of KiN. We have hit a road block with provincial regulations, but conversations continue.
Working on biofuels/renewable energy opportuntiies.
And the annual RDCK budget was approved yesterday.
