Flavour Trail funding for 2014 on the table

Organizers of the North Saanich Flavour Trail are seeking a second year of funding from the municipality to keep the event growing

Organizers of the North Saanich Flavour Trail are seeking a second year of funding from the municipality to keep the agricultural event growing.

On Monday, Jan. 20, the Capital Region Food and Agriculture Initiatives Roundtable (CRFAIR) asked North Saanich district council to spend $9,500 on the Flavour Trail program. The District had put up that amount last year for the program — a series of educational events on local farms. North Saanich had run the Flavour Trail on their own until 2013, when they turned it over to CRFAIR.

Mayor Alice Finall said the council will consider the request further during their budget meetings.
