This conference is being hosted by North Kootenay Lake Community Services Society in partnership with the West Kootenay Permacuture Coop. It is supported by Columbia Basin Trust, RDCK Area A, D, and E and other local organizations. The event was inspired by “Kickstart Kaslo,” a public event where local residents identified food production as a top priority in our localized economy.
