Forbes Family Farm
Steve Forbes and his brother Gord have been running their organic farm in Oliver BC since 1974. They partnered with Okanagan Similkameen Stewardship over fifteen years ago and have been dedicated in improving and protecting the beautiful 1-acre wetland pond at the south end of the farm. Some of the many improvement measures have included invasive plant management, planting hundreds of native plants, community outreach and installation of a bench and educational signage. In recent years, Steve and Gord have also partnered with Stewardship to enhance the western edge of the wetland, planting rose thickets to create a natural border.
