In September we were nominated for the The Real Estate Foundation of BC's Land Awards for our extensive composting program. Our composting program combines food, grape/filtration and landscape waste as compost that is then used on the vineyards and takes into consideration how composting would effect our neighbours as well as the local wildlife.
Early this month we were excited to learn that we were a finalist in the Private Sector category and this past Friday Sandra Oldfield, CEO/Winemaker, took Cody Isted, our groundskeeper, to the awards ceremony. We may not have taken home the prize, but it was great to meet other like minded people from so different industries and to learn how they are doing their part.
Using photos we sent them, the Real Estate Foundation produced a short video about our composting program.
The Real Estate Foundation of BC - a philanthropic organization that funds projects that advance responsible and informed land use, conservation and real estate practices - also unveiled the finalists for its fourth annual Land Awards Gala. The awards honour companies, non-profits and governments leading innovative land-use projects that contribute to sustainable communities.
