Getting healthy together in Saanich

Bring your thoughts and suggestions to upcoming workshop on healthy communities

The Healthy Saanich advisory committee and Saanich Community Association Network want to know your thoughts on what makes a healthy community.

The two organizations will host a workshop next month to explore a number of topics with Saanich residents to turn ideas into action.

From food sustainability and recreation to transportation and public safety, the roundtable discussion will provide residents with an open forum to talk freely about opportunities to make Saanich a healthier, more vibrant, more inclusive community.

The free event goes Nov. 16 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Garth Homer Centre, 813 Darwin Ave. To register, contact Elizabeth at 250-475-5494, Ext. 3430 or by email elizabeth.vandenhengel@saanich.ca.
