Community Garden Survey
The Tofino Community Food Initiative is working hard to facilitate access to local, high quality, fairly-priced, organic, sustainable and healthy food for our community. Planned projects include the Edible Garden Tour, workshops in gardening, composting and cooking, special movie nights, and the creation of community gardens. In order to plan for a garden this summer, we must apply for funding and start preparing now. Please take a moment to help guide us by filling in our survey!
Thank you for your help,

Hey look, this is the kind of thing that makes me feel really good about our town – a local business taking the initiative to contribute to our community:
The Best Western Tin Wis Resort will offer a local’s discount of 20% in the Calm Waters Dining Room, beginning October 1st. On Saturday October 3rd, and every second Saturday thereafter, this 20% will be donated to a local charity/organization that provides invaluable services to the coastal communities.
We are in the process of searching for organizations that will receive this contribution, but we need some help compiling a list of charities and organizations in the towns of Tofino and Ucluelet.
We are asking for nominations from the communities for a list of organizations that you would like to see receive this donation.
Please forward the name of the charity/organization that you would like us to consider.
We are very excited about this program and would like the community’s help in determining the beneficiaries.
Thank you and if you have any questions or suggestions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
