They will deliver supplies and will work with local villagers to improve the fields over the month of December. To date approximately $1500 has been raised and many supplies have been donated.

Local musicians are generously donating their time for the November 23rd event.
MC Art Napoleon, a nationally-renowned singer and story-teller, will be joined by Victoria’s “full contact folk” group The Ecclestons, Chris Frye from The Bills,, Courtney Campbell with the B.C. Fiddle Orchestra, and poetry from Budd Hall.

Admission is by donation (Suggested $15/adult, $10/children & $40/family or what you can afford). There will be desserts, tea and coffee and door prizes. Gift Cards will be available for those wanting to donate to the Project in someone’s name.
