Virtual Field Trips

During this exceptional time, we’ve decided to bring our heritage site to you. Over the next while, we’re going to be making a series of live broadcasts exploring different aspect of this beautiful, fascinating place. We might work in the garden together, explore boxes, make something or take a tour.

For now, our goal is to do one segment each week day for about 15 minutes, starting at 10AM. 

You can find these live broadcasts on our Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/OldGristMill/ and our previous broadcasts on YouTube at http://www.youtube.com/c/GristMillGardensKeremeos

The best way to you can support us through this is to buy a Seasons Pass to the site–even if you live far away! We don’t receive operating funding from any level of government and all our usual ways to make money are unavailable to us at the moment (admission fees, meals in the restaurant, campground fees, event tickets, etc) but we still have bills to pay. Your help is greatly appreciated!

Thanks so much and we can’t wait to show you around!

Some of our past episodes include:

If you’re a teacher and would like us to present directly to your class through a Zoom.us meeting or similar, please get in touch!
