Valley Permaculture's Rachel Symington speaks at a Plant-a-Row event.


t our November AGM, our board and members voted to dissolve Food Matters Chilliwack. This was a difficult decision, but we are very happy to know that our vision will continue through the Valley Permaculture Guild (VPG) and their excellent programming.


With the VPG, our popular gleaning program will continue as a part of their Farm 2 Food Bank program. VPG holds excellent food and gardening workshops throughout the year. Unfortunately, our Plant-A-Row, Grow-A-Row program will not continue.

If you would like to hear from VPG about upcoming events, email here to join their mailing list.
