Youth Food Action Team:

The youth food action team is a group of youth between 14-24 that have a common interest in local food systems and good food in the CRD. Our program offers education to our youth members on local food through networking with urban farms, local restaurants, and other local organizations. The team's mission and mandate includes creating a Youth Food Network as well as educating our communities through workshops, video projects, and conferences on the subjects of good food and local food systems. If you are interested in getting involved, email Eden at youthcoordinator@crfair.ca!

Flavour Trails:

Are you interested in supporting our program where people get out and experience the tastes of local farms and food? Flavour Trails might be something for you! This year, we are looking for volunteers for the Strawberry Buzz Festival (June 24 - 25), and the North Saanich Food and Farm Festival (August 18 - 20). For more information, contact Jaya at jscott@crfair.ca!

Farmer 2 Farmer:

Every year in March, we put on a conference and farm tours to increase farm sector capacity. Volunteers are needed to help with tasks from supporting the speakers as room monitors, to preparing lunch, to registration or assisting with farm visits and everything in between.
