    Every Thursday (3-7pm) during the summer months, the Westside Community Food Market gives small-scale and new local vendors an opportunity to sell their produce directly to customers, while also helping low-income and vulnerable populations access local foods that are close to home through a coupon program.

    Come browse fresh, locally grown produce; delicious baked goods and snacks; beautiful hand-picked flowers; and all sorts of small crafts and jewelry.

    Want to get more involved? If you are interested in volunteering for the market, please fill out this form.

    Did you know we are surrounded by renewable energy? 

    Whether it's green transportation, energy efficient buildings or an urban farm, it's just a question of taking another look around. Join SPEC's Energy Committee in exploring a diverse array of renewable energy assets at Olympic Village and let's discuss how far down to road we are for a zero fossil fuels future. 

    Meet us rain or shine on July 21 at 11am at the Olympic Village Canada Line station for a 60 to 75 minute fun walk, ending at the Creekside Community Centre.
