Garden Volunteer Opportunity
    Do you enjoy being outside? Gardening? Working with children? The Intergenerational Landed Learning program at the Okanagan Science Centre is seeking volunteers to be "garden friends" during the 2012-13 school year. You will work in teams of two adults and two school children to learn about growing food crops, harvesting, the science of gardening, and good nutrition under the direction of Okanagan Science Centre staff. You will need to commit seven Wednesday mornings during April, May, and June and two or three mornings in September and November.

    Want a first-hand look at what being a "garden friend" is all about? Find out from those already enjoying it. Join us for a tour of our volunteers' gardens, this Sunday, July 29 starting at noon. For details, call or visit the OSC.
