Tool Swap at Seedy Saturday

April 14, 2012

200 Block of Main Street, Penticton

Are idle gardening tools hanging around your home?

Swap for other tools, sell them, or donate them to the Centre for Urban Agriculture (C.URB)!

We (C.URB) will collect and put them to work in a new home!

Suggested tools: shovels, spades, digging forks, rakes, hoes, trowels, clippers, pruners, pruning saws, weed diggers, hand hedge trimmers

For information on where to drop off your tools before April 14 and what we need to know from you, email or call 250-492-0158.

And we’re underway!

You may have seen some activity on site this week.  Following the signing of a three-year lease with the city, the new home of the Penticton Urban Agriculture Association started to take form.

The City’s scramble parking lot millings have been spread, a whole pile of weeds have been removed and there are even veggies planted in our first raised beds!  The site is designated to become the home of the South Okanagan Performing Arts Centre, an excellent and inspiring project, but one that still needs to raise considerable funds to become a reality.  You’ll see their signs posted on the Nanaimo end of the lot.

In mid July there will be a meet and greet session for the public to find out more about the PUAA and our plans for the site. Keep your eyes open for details on this event.

If you’d like to stay in the know – email us at and we’ll add you to our mailing list!
