The Ponoka Community Growing Project’s 24th harvest will be held on Friday, Sept. 23, weather permitting.

Lunch will be provided, starting at 1 p.m., followed by combining the 155 acres of Canola. Everyone is welcome.

The field is located six miles north of the Ponoka Secondary Campus on Range Road 254.

If you are willing to help out with setting up, combining or with a financial donation,

please phone or text Nieske Schuur, 403-704-5211, or Peter Doornenbal, 403-302-2545.

All proceeds go towards the Canadian Foodgrains Bank.
