Providing Everything You Need

Grow Local 

Grow Local is a collaborative initiative of local agriculture groups encouraging and assisting local residents with backyard food production. We offer participation and education in a variety of programs and events to foster a spirit of curiosity and capability in our community.

School Gardens

We are working to expand School District 70's access to school garden facilities. AVFSS is garnering official school board endorsement for a comprehensive school garden strategy; including developing garden infrastructure, curriculum implementation and creating community programs.

Gardening Videos

AVFSS partners with Shaw TV to provide informational videos that focus on gardening techniques and local food knowledge. Tune into Shaw programming or visit the Grow Local Youtube Channel to learn more about food growing, gathering, preserving and more!
