Co-Vic Garden

The Medical Arts Health Research Group in Penticton is collaborating with other community partners to look for ways to provide better food security in Penticton while promoting mental health. One way that we hope to do this is by helping people grow more local fresh produce for ourselves and the food bank.

To do this we are working with others to develop Co-Vic garden boxes. Co-Vic garden boxes are small raised garden beds that are approximately 4 feet long by 4 feet wide by 8 inches tall.

We will be selecting households in Penticton who don't have access to a garden, have the space for two Co-Vic garden boxes and are in need of fresh produce. Participants can receive a raised garden bed to grow fresh produce for their household. We will assist them in setting up the garden bed and supply them with a second garden bed which will be grown for the Penticton Food Bank. 

The money raised in this GoFundMe will go towards the supplies (wood, screws, soil, and plants) required to donate these Co-Vic boxes to families in need. Approximately $50 will provide a household with one raised garden bed (this includes the wood for building, soil and seeds). 

We are hoping to begin selecting families and building these beds in the next week. Your support will bring fresh produce to families who need it during this time. Thank you!
