Our 2018 Pantry Share program will include pick-up opportunities in Keremeos, Penticton, Kelowna, Vernon, and Vancouver. (We will not be shipping individual shares… canning is heavy and it’s not worth the cost to you.)
The frequency will vary by location, with exact dates and locations of all pick-ups yet to be determined (and informed somewhat by our final number of members in each region) but will likely include no fewer than the following number of pick-up opportunities between mid-June and late-November 2018 where we will come to your area and offer a window of time for you (or a trusted friend) to come pick up your preserves:
- Keremeos (weekly)
- Penticton (monthly)
- Kelowna (at least four dates)
- Vernon (at least two dates)
- Vancouver (at least four dates)
If you’re from outside these communities but are interested in a share, please get in touch and we’ll see if we can accommodate you where you are. It improves your odds significantly if you can convince others in your community to also sign up.

If you are unable to attend any of these pick-up opportunities, you are welcome to send someone on your behalf (just email us to let us know). If you don’t pick up, there will be plenty of other opportunities through the summer (once a month, or so). If you live in Princeton, Keremeos, Osoyoos, Oliver or Penticton, you are welcome to come visit the Grist Mill and Gardens anytime to pick up a portion of your share, as well.
