Kaslo Food Hub featured in new Kootenay Co-op Radio Documentary Series
Our local community radio station has recently completed a documentary series profiling the innovative and inspiring work of a variety of organizations across the Kootenays. Amplifying Voices of the Community featured our food security project and it makes for great listening. Click on the link below to listen to the 15 minute documentary about our work here at the Kaslo Food Hub.

Note: To find our documentary, scroll down the page you’ve linked to and search for number 11, “Hubs and Circles”. We are the first half of the documentary, which also features the work of the Circle of Indigenous Nations.
Kaslo Food Hub is a program of NKLCSS

We’re proud to be a Good Food Organization, aligned with many other organizations across Canada who work to build food security in our communities.

Goat news…..

from Friends of the Lardeau River:

Thanks to all who phoned the MOT re concerns of Mountain goats and traffic on Hwy 31 north of Lardeau. The Ministry listened and hired a Mountain goat specialist. This week a group of volunteers placed a variety mineral salts at select locations high above the road.

Apparently the shift to succulent green vegetation each spring alters the goats’ mineral balance causing them to seek minerals, they are most often seen at this location Apr through July.

Of course there is no guarantee the goats won’t be back on the road, please drive carefully.

Feel free to share.
