Pedvac Needs Seeds for its Garden

Bountiful Garden

Pedvac is excited to be getting ready to plant its second food bank garden.  This year we are expanding the garden to be a community garden including twelve boxes to be used by individuals and installing paths, a blackberry patch, bird houses, small individual vegie gardens (squash, strawberries, etc.), a three bin compost bin, etc.

We hope to create a space that everyone will enjoy visiting – a place where everyone is invited to enjoy nature in a safe and comforting environment – where you can meet your neighbours and newcomers to the area.

You can help by volunteering your time at the garden, by renting (for a nominal fee) a garden box and by donating a package of seeds for the garden.  We are looking for carrots, lettuce, kale, cucumbers, squash, green and yellow beans, peas, nasturtiums, beets, and peas.  Starter plants for tomatoes and other vegies would also be greatly accepted.

Come out and have some fun!

Gift Certificates For PEDVAC Boutique For Christmas

Hello There,

Vivienne here with a quick update just in time for Christmas.  As we reflect over the past year, there are so many people who have crossed out paths.

The idea of gift giving has in some cases become so extravagant and commercialized that the obvious value of something small and meaningful has almost disappeared.

This year won’t you consider supporting a worthy charity like PEDVAC which does so much for so many in need in our region and beyond? There are folks in need all year round, but especially at this time of year who, even with our prices well below the competition, cannot afford to purchase perhaps some housewares, even a warm winter coat or our famous mittens made from recycled sweaters.

Now available right here on our Web site (you can use your credit card via PayPal) or in person from the PEDVAC office (cash or cheque), we have gift certificates for purchase in denominations of $10, $25 or $50.
