Community Garden Volunteers Needed

May 08, 2017

Victoria Faulkner Women’s Centre is seeking volunteers to help maintain our community garden plots this growing season from June until end of August. Tasks include: weekly watering, weeding, harvesting and landscaping of our 503 Hanson location. Our garden produces food for our weekly programming at the centre. While this position does require the commitment of 1 hour per week, volunteers are welcome to share within the harvest and participate in fall preservation and fermenting workshops.

 

This opportunity is open to all folks that identify as a woman, and have a desire to learn, or passion for growing.

 

Please contact Sarah Murphy, VFWC Program Coordinator, at (867) 667-2693 or coordinator@vfwomenscentre.com, for more details.

Our Condolences

April 26, 2017

We are shocked and saddened by the deaths of Wendy Carlick and Sarah McIntosh. It is difficult to find words to express the grief and outrage we feel that two women in our community had such violence inflicted upon them. 

The staff at VFWC would like to offer their condolences to the Kwanlin Dun First Nation, the McIntosh and Carlick families, and to the family of Greg Alvin Dawson. 

The Kwanlin Dun First Nation has organized a Memorial Walk on Wednesday, April 26th starting at the baseball diamond in McIntyre at 4:30pm. The walk will move through the community, ending at 19 Murphy Road where folks will have an opportunity to pay their respects.
