This is the second annual forum organized by the North Okanagan Food System Initiative (NOFSI). This year’s focus is on the environmental side of our regional food system, exploring three themes, including: water, waste, and land with the overarching theme of climate change.

The aim of our forum is to bring together actors in the North Okanagan food system to inspire ideas, transfer knowledge and spark action for positive change in our regional food system. The day will include presentations and success stories, panel discussions, networking opportunities, and an open space exercise to further discuss ideas and identify priority actions.
