Stories of our community involvement
Recognizing all the volunteers at community gardens who grow food for good! This picture is of 2 volunteers at Central Okanagan Community Farm Society and Okanagan Fruit Tree Project Society who grow approximately 20,000 pounds of fresh veggies per year for 12 local Charities feeding many families in need. 100 percent run by volunteers. #SnapSomeGood
Now more than ever, we need to get in the dirt and start planting vegetables for those in need. It is up to us to make a difference in our local food sustainability.
Exciting News! The Central Okanagan Community Farm Society is now part of the Okanagan Fruit Tree Project Society. We are currently preparing the irrigation on our vegetable farms to start planting this weekend. We will be planting 72 rows of veggies this season on our Kelowna farm and more out in Winfield.
If you would like to get involved as a volunteer and have the opportunity to take home vegetables in exchange for your help, please contact us! No prior experience or minimum hours required. Get involved today and help feed the valley. Produce is donated to numerous local non-profits and charities.
Thank you Do Some Good! We have consistently attracted volunteers through your platform! Moms and college students looking for ways to give back as well as office workers looking for ideas to get out into nature and help in their community!
In the past two weeks our wonderful volunteers have harvested 57 rubbermaid bins of vegetables to donate to agencies such as: Central Okanagan Community Food Bank, Karis Support Society, Kelowna Women's Shelter, Freedom's Door, Kelowna's Gospel Mission, The Salvation Army Kelowna. This assorted vegetable bin went to the NOW Canada AG House to help nourish the women and children at this emergency center. Spreading the love one bin of veggies at a time!

Volunteers Ken, Suzanne and Rob planting veggies that will benefit families from many worthy causes. Our non profit would not survive without volunteers like them. Thank you!! #growingsomegood
This Saturday our non-profit was grateful for the help of 16 volunteers who care about equal access to healthy, fresh produce in our valley. The Central Okanagan Community Farm Society planted 25, 130 foot long rows of vegetables at our Helen’s Acres location here in Kelowna.

Those seeds and seedlings will produce thousands of pounds of vegetables that will be donated to a dozen social service agencies who will then donate them to people in need of fresh vegetables.
Thank you for helping us feed the valley!

Check them out and find out how you can get involved and enjoy the outdoors!
The snow is still hanging around, but we are getting excited to start our vegetable gardens in about a month! We will be almost doubling our plot size in Kelowna and will need a lot of help from you amazing volunteers! We have received 5 applications in the past week through Do Some Good, so thank you! Our goal this year is to grow 25,000 pounds of fresh vegetables to feed families in the valley.
We will be supporting many local agencies such as Central Okanagan Community Food Bank, The Salvation Army Central Okanagan, Kelowna's Gospel Mission, Okanagan Boys and Girls Clubs, Karis Support Society, Kelowna Women's Shelter, Freedom's Door, and many more.
We would like to send a huge thank you to two of our amazing and dedicated volunteers, Hiltrud and Julie (center photo) for your years of commitment and hard work! See you all soon in the dirt!
We have some exciting news to share! We pitched at the @100 women who care event a couple of weeks ago! We were told it was a close race but we did not win. This lovely lady from The Child Advocacy Center won the 100 Women Who Care donation! She and her husband liked what we are doing so much that they donated $5000 to our organization! An anonymous donor matched the donation so we raised $10,000 for COCFS! Thank you Debra and Tom Mauro.
