Vancouver Neighbourhood Food Networks
Vancouver’s neighbourhood food networks are collaborating on food initiatives and programs – from community gardens to emergency food programs and food-based education and celebrations.

BC Ice Wines 
2014 is a good year for BC’s ice wines. “When asked about the outlook for this year’s harvest CEO of Summerhill, Ezra Cipes, commented that, ‘to make outstanding Icewine you need to start with outstanding grapes, and 2014 was one of the best Okanagan growing seasons ever.
