By purchasing a Community Access Share you will be providing a family with a weeks worth of vegetables from our farm. This initiative supports us as local food growers and makes fresh healthy vegetables accessible to community members experiencing crisis.
The Community Access Share is a partnership between the Access Centre and Puzzlegrass Farm. 5% of proceeds from all Puzzlegrass CSA shares will also go towards the Community Access Share.
The Access Centre is a drop-in centre whose mandate is to alleviate the effects of poverty through advocacy, awareness and action. The Access Centre connects vulnerable people in our community with the support, services and resources they need to move past barriers in their lives. Some of the services include: legal advocacy (family/tenancy etc.), disability advocacy, free income tax filing, mens counselling and RISE (anger management). They assess and provide direct community outreach services and Information to people in the South Okanagan. The Access Centre's vision is: A hand, A heart, A voice.
