The LUSH Valley Food Action Society invites local farmers, food producers and service organizations to Put Yourself on the Map and take part in the Community Food Atlas online mapping Workshop.

Analesa Blake from Vancouver Island Health Authority will provide us with the history of this project and the hands-on skills to best use this resource.

Come to the HUB — LUSH Valley’s central location at 1126 Piercy Ave. in Courtenay — Nov. 7 from 3 to 4 p.m., where you will learn how to add and update your business information to the Community Food Atlas website.

In conjunction, LUSH Valley will host an open house from 3 to 6 p.m. to taste this season’s abundant and ongoing harvest from our Fruit Tree Program. Come and promote your services by bringing items to share, business information and a photo to add to our interactive HUB food map.

This is your chance to show us the sustainable work you are doing. Help us deliver current education and resources that secure and increase the amount of quality food being grown and processed in the Comox Valley.

This is also a chance to put in your orders for local Harvest Pies supplied by the HUB’s Fruit Tree Program and processing workshops.

For more information, visit www.communityfoodatlas.ca or phone 250-331-0152.
