Thanks for a successful fundraiser

The past week, the Grandview Woodland Food Connection partnered up with Slow Food Vancouver and the Eastside Family Place who are co-gardeners in our new Britannia School garden, to host a school food gardens film fundraiser and dinner with funds raised to support the Britannia School Food Garden and the Thousand Gardens in Africa Project.

A big thanks to everyone who came out and supported this very successful fundraising event. We are pleased to say that we raised close to $2400.
