The Central Okanagan Food Policy Council has an exciting volunteer opportunity! This summer we are launching the Food Forest Ambassador program. We are looking for volunteers to be Ambassadors of the Food Forest located in Mission Creek Regional Park. Being an Ambassador involves spending 2 to 3 hours on a weekend day once per month at the Food Forest. The Ambassadors will engage with people who are walking through or past the Food Forest on the Mission Creek Greenway. The goal is to raise awareness about the Food Forest and encourage people to visit, observe, learn and harvest from the forest regularly.
As an Ambassador, you will have the opportunity to learn about Food Forestry through a training session lead by the Food Forest Coordinator, Elana Westers. You will gain knowledge and expertise so you can share with others!
The Food Forest is a way to inspire the citizens of the Okanagan to consider planting edible perennials in their own gardens and yards. Becoming an Ambassador is a way to support a sustainable and healthy community where the local food system is strengthened and valued. Please consider joining this very important movement!

Also suitable for:

  • Groups
  • Families
  • Youth (ages 13-18)
  • Special Needs & Diverse Abilities

The COFPC provides an opportunity for information and resource sharing, and a chance for people interested in food-related issues in the Central Okanagan to work together towards common goals. Membership is open to anyone in the communities of Lake Country, Kelowna, Westbank First Nations, West Kelowna, Peachland and Regional District of Central Okanagan.
