Growing North Cariboo Society is a non-profit society formed in January 2014 as a sister organization to the North Cariboo Agricultural Marketing Association (dba FARMED).

The Growing North Cariboo Society is bringing people together from different areas, agencies, and sectors across the North Cariboo region to discuss and identify barriers to health with a focus on food security. Since much of the North Cariboo is not “food secure” a focus of the discussions will be on how we can build capacity, the benefits of having access to local food in having sustainable, healthy and viable communities, and how to improve the linkages between rural and urban settings.
