Description Of This Tour

Our climate is changing, posing serious challenges to our vineyards and wineries. How can grape growers adapt? What can families and individuals do to live more sustainably?

Benoit Gauthier, Director of Wine Making and Viticulture at Noble Ridge Winery, will illustrate how growers in the valley are implementing practices in response to increasingly challenging growing seasons.  See how the worldwide Biosphere Sustainable Lifestyle Program helps share lessons learned.

Join First Things First Okanagan (FTFO) for games, displays and activities to demonstrate how we can live more sustainably. This part of the tour includes activities for both kids and adults.  FTFO seeks to educate and influence individuals and communities to strengthen climate awareness and stimulate effective action.
