Last year’s Field to Fork Challenge was a huge success! Participants had a chance to cook and form an appreciation for locally-grown agriculture. The Challenge entrants created an array of recipes from Hungry Hiker Skillet to Turkey Stuffed Zucchini Boats to Rhubarb Strawberry Pie.

“We are delighted to partner with 4-H BC again this year,” said Pat Tonn, BCAITC Executive Director. “We are able to offer this amazing food and agriculture Challenge province-wide! We invite educators, school administrators, and parents in all regions of BC to encourage students to participate and submit entries of their favourite recipes.”
