What is the IONCG Program?

The “Innovative Outreach for Nutrition, Cooking and Gardening” is in its second year, here at Powell River Brain Injury Society.
Last year (2014), we built a fenced garden area, with raised garden beds and had success with many of our crops.
With major funding from Opportunities Fund For Persons with Disabilities and increased funding from B.C. Community Gaming Grant, we are able to further develop our unique program.
