During the Soils and Sustainability Convention in Invermere on September 19, 2015, BC Hydro presented a $5,000 donation to Groundswell Network Society.

The grant for Groundswell Living Soil and Compost Centre of Best Practice was made through BC Hydro’s Donations & Sponsorship program, which supports initiatives and events with a focus on environmental sustainability that foster personal and organizational action for clean energy and conservation in B.C.

Groundswell’s projects help BC Hydro create a sustainable energy future for British Columbia by managing our impacts on the environment and fostering an energy conservation and efficiency culture.

Groundswell Living Soil and Compost Centre helps communities throughout the region by providing an increased level of soils and composting expertise that will impact solid waste management, local food production, education and social engagement.
