Our Team

The Land to Table Steering Committee is a table of partners, made up of representatives from key organizations, including: UBC Okanagan, Interior Health, Ministry of Agriculture, Community Futures, Organic BC, and local producer representation. Our part-time Network Director, Liz Blakeway coordinates all aspects of this work in conjunction with Food Security Coordinator Sammy Blair and Communications Coordinator Madison Pinder.

We are fortunate to have a group of dedicated individuals (many from farming backgrounds, some current farmers) to guide this work, and ensure L2T is connected and collaborating across many sectors.
