The EGP’s Advisory Committee has played a critical role in developing our program. In fact, without them we wouldn’t exist! Most of the original individuals or organizations that got together to build the EGP as a program are still on our Advisory Committee today.
Tricia Edgar participated in the first steering committee meetings in 2006 and continues to be on the committee today. She believes that growing a strong local food system reconnects us to our local places and is inspired by the EGP’s work to help people in our community grow and eat fresh local food.
Margaret Broughton has been thrilled to see the growth of the EGP since participating on the first grant proposal in 2006. She brings the support of Vancouver Coastal Health to the Advisory. As a public health dietitian and chair of the North Shore Table Matters Network, she is honoured to work with folks so passionate about healthy food, people and community.
As a staff member of North Shore Recycling Program, Jenn was delighted to join the Advisory Committee in 2011 and brings the waste reduction and composting perspective to the table on behalf of the three North Shore local governments. Jenn believes that bringing people together to share great food and to create healthy food systems is a powerful and delicious way to grow healthy, connected and sustainable communities.
A believer in the work the EGP is doing towards building a sustainable local food system, Wendy has been involved with the EGP since 2008; first as a volunteer and later as a member of the Advisory Committee.
