Elk Valley

Food security, access to locally produced food and food-growing space are priorities for our Elk Valley Branch.

Social distancing is easy to maintain in our spacious Community EcoGarden. Visitors welcome! We also welcome volunteer help at the garden as well as with our newest project, the Local store.

The Angel Garden, located in the heart of the EcoGarden, is a serene spot to read or chat with a friend.

Wildsight Elk Valley is looking for new Board members to help move our projects forward. If you are keen to get involved at this level please contact Mary at elkvalley@wildsight.ca.
