Cadets go farming

Cadets from the Vernon Cadet Summer Training Centre went off base this week to help out a local organization.

While attending the camp, cadets aged 13-18 learn a lot more than just how to march and are taught a variety of life skills. There is also an emphasize on community involvement.

Cadets from the military exercise and the clinical component participated in various tasks around Patchwork Farms.

And the time and effort the teens put into the task was appreciated.

“We were thrilled to work with the cadets! They are an amazing group of young people. Many thanks from Patchwork for all the help with cleanup - things are looking great now,” posted Patchwork Farms on the cadet Facebook page.

Patchwork Farms is a community garden on two acres next to the Okanagan College Kalamalka Campus.

The farm is a collection of plots tended by various groups in the region.

Karen Truesdale, with Kindale Development Association that tends plots at the farm, said the garden is a “therapeutic gardening place where everyone in the community is welcome to heal themselves and their families with this wonderful outdoor activity.”
