Taste of the Town Kicks Off LiveIt! Green Month

September 27, 2018

Fort St. John, BC – October is LiveIt! Green Month in the City of Fort St. John. The month-long initiative aims to promote and celebrate green projects and activities in our community and to educate citizens on some green ideas they can use in their homes. Each week focuses on a unique topic including food security, water management, waste reduction, and energy literacy. Taste of the Town, held between September 29 and October 6, promotes local businesses featuring locally sourced food and beverages made right here in Fort St. John.

This is a great opportunity for residents and visitors to support local businesses, producers, and restaurants while sampling fresh, locally produced food and beverage. Participating organizations include Whole Wheat & Honey, Fort St. John Farmers’ Market, Hip Peace Produce, Homesteader Health, Mighty Peace Brewing Co., NEAT, Beard’s Brewing Co., and Spicy Fusion.

While participating in Taste of the Town residents are encouraged to use the Taste of the Town Passport by picking one up at the Fort St. John Visitor Centre or downloading it at fortstjohn.ca/taste-town and returning it by October 12 for a chance to win a prize.

Additional events during LiveIt! Green month include a Home Game Butchering Workshop, Gardening Series with NEAT, fermentation demonstration, Yard Waste drop-off, Passive House and Water Treatment Facility tours, and various project showcases.
