Foothills Park

The Foothills Community Association seeks your endorsement for the creation of a natural park to be situated above the developed part of Foothills (Please be assured that any endorsement in no way entails financial commitment.)

Such a park would provide spectacular views over all of Greater Vernon, preserve habitat in an area formally identified as ecologically sensitive, and link to the Grey Canal Trail and thus add to a necklace of parks and trails that serve as a gateway to Silver Star. The area under consideration has spectacular rocky bluffs and already has rough trails which provide access to viewpoints via a nearly flat route, as well as offering more physically demanding paths to access them. It would provide a restful place for peaceful personal renewal where one could enjoy the panoramic views, wildlife in its natural setting and be a destination for tourists.

Lacto-fermentation demo
Attendees gather around for one of the eye-opening demos

About 70 people attended the how-to evening of short demos on long-term storage, dehydration, juice, solar cookery, kombucha, and lacto-fermentation (for pickles, sauerkraut and kimchi).

They browsed the info tables, got food conserving help, and listened to all the presentations for a very healthy, cost-saving evening. Questions and discussion were as usual welcome.
