Logo_V3The Okanagan Greens Society is an award-winning non-profit organization based in Kelowna and supporting projects in British Columbia’s Southern Interior. We are a non-partisan collective of citizens and community advocates that formed in 2005 and officially incorporated as a non-profit society in February 2008. Our mission statement is: “Working together in our community for a healthy environment, happy people and a sustainable local economy.” We achieve our community outreach by producing and partnering in unique events, vibrant celebrations, and specialized media focused on Okanagan environmental, social and economic awareness.

As a Society we have supported a diverse range of Kelowna community initiatives including: the GE food labeling “Food Warning” event with Greenpeace and launching the 2008 pilot project of the Okanagan Greens – Local Food for Local Schools program. As well, we have been a gift sponsor and/or host partner for numerous keynote presentations including: UBCO’s World Film Festival, an evening with Spring Gillard, Percy Schmeiser’s 2009 Okanagan Speaking Tour and the 350 Climate Action presentation. We are currently collaborating with GE Free BC and the True Food Foundation, bringing awareness to local and national NO GMO campaigns.
