Food Secure Oliver Plan

In the summer of 2018 the Edible Pathway project replaced flowers in planter boxes that fronted of Main Street businesses with edible plants (herbs and vegetables). 

The project targeted the healthy neighborhood design and healthy food systems, by creating a network of edible plants into a walking path on Main Street.

This project was possible through funding provided by Plan H program, BC Healthy Communities Society (BCHC).

The Harvest Hut is a space for members of the community to share fresh produce.  Anyone with excess vegetables in their garden or farm was invited to bring their extras to the Hut each Monday.

The Hut is open to all members of the public, not only those battling food insecurity.  The Hut is an opportunity to connect anyone wanting produce with anyone that has more than then need.

Food from the Edible Pathway project was brought to the Hut each Monday’s harvest.
