passed suddenly on March 21, 2021. Born 1945 in New
Westminster BC, he is predeceased by parents Ed &
Audrey, and twin brother Larry. Raised on the family

often found him tinkering on his ‘64 Triumph.
A genuine renaissance man, Lorne is remembered

partner Jake (Evelyn) Murfitt, the Crowley’s,
cousins, nieces, nephews and friends.

kind of native soil you have.
Chances are, you will have to
amend the soil if your plants
are to grow vigorously. If
you’ve had a garden in the
same place for years and
years, you may have much the
The ideal type of soil for your
kitchen garden is loam. It
contains a balance of all three
soil materials—silt, sand and
clay – plus humus, the organic
component of soil, which is
formed by the decomposition
of leaves and other plant
material. Loam has higher pH
and calcium levels because
of its previous organic matter
DO YOU KNOW
YOUR SOIL ?
There are five different soil
types that gardeners and
growers usually encounter.
Each soil type is a combination
of just three types of
weathered rock particles that
make up the soil: sand, silt,
and clay. How these three particles
are combined defines
your soil’s type—how it feels
to the touch, how it holds
water, and how it’s managed,
among other things.
If you are turning over a patch
of ground for the first time,
you will need to know what
SOIL GOAL - LOAM
The type of soil that gardens and gardeners
love is loamy soil. Loam is dark
in colour and is mealy – soft, dry and
crumbly – in your hands. It has a tight hold
on water and plant food but it drains well,
and air moves freely between soil particles
down to the roots. The feel test for loam
yields a smooth, partly gritty, partly sticky
ball that crumbles easily.
Although loamy soil is the ideal material to
work with, don’t despair if you don’t have
it in your garden – yet. Luckily, we can add
the things we are missing...
What do plants ‘eat’?
Soil texture is an important factor in making
nutrients available to the roots of the
plant. So what nutrients do plants need if
they are to grow vigorously?
The Law of the Minimum is a reminder
that a plant’s ability to flourish is limited
by the nutrient or mineral in shortest
This guide is a basic outline
to the type of soils you may
have, and how to correct it so
that your garden flourishes.
1. SANDY SOIL
Sandy soil is dry and gritty to
the touch, and because the
particles have huge spaces
between them, it can’t hold
on to water.
To test, roll the slightly wet
sandy soil in your palms, no
ball should be formed and it
crumbles through your fingers

Silty soil has much smaller
particles than sandy soil so it’s
smooth to the touch. When
moistened, it’s soapy slick.

Strengthening access to local food
New community-led projects in the
Columbia Basin will support access to
affordable, quality, local food for residents,
with an emphasis on assisting
those in need. Community kitchens,
lawns-to-food initiatives and seed-saving
libraries are just a few of the projects
included in Columbia Basin Trust’s
Local Food Access and Recovery
“We continue to see increasing interest
in enhancing community growing
spaces, recovering and redistributing
food and using improved technology in
food production,” said Hannah Holden,
Delivery of Benefits Senior Manager
with Columbia Basin Trust. “These
projects will help more Basin residents—especially
those in need—
access locally grown, nutritious foods
from communal growing and processing
spaces, and benefit from knowledge
Food access and recovery grants are
part of the Trust’s work in local food
production and access, a strategic priority
as directed by Basin residents.

community connections through
food and reduce food waste.
The Village of Warfield will increase
food production and sharing by placing
garden boxes and pollinator plots
throughout municipal greenspaces.
The Warfield Food Advisory Committee
will also offer food-related workshops,
organize plant exchanges and
seed swaps. Volunteers and committee
members will engage the community,
and grow and redistribute unused food
“Food is a fundamental part of our
human experience. We hope this project
will not only build food resilience,
but also increase community connections,”
said Cyra Yunkws, Village of

Warfield Food Advisory Committee.
“We are grateful for Columbia Basin

look forward to seeing the food and
flowers throughout Warfield.”

Community Association. The library of
resources and skill-sharing will enable
greater access to local food on a yearround
basis, while reducing food waste.
Tools include canners, juicers, mixers,
dehydrators, grinders, smokers and
more. Shared use will support sustainability
and building community connections
as many tools are not required
for daily use.
“We appreciate this support for
increasing our capacity for local food
production and processing. Having
access to these tools will make preparation
and preservation of locally grown
food more efficient and easier, particularly
for younger people who are just
starting out,” said Karen Newmoon,
Chair of the Johnsons Landing Community
Association. “Sharing these
tools will foster a sense of community
cohesion and contribute to reducing
our ecological footprints, while increasing
the use of seasonally abundant,
locally grown foods.”

INTEGRATED RESOURCE USE
Are you a multiple resource user? Are you a back country camper,
prospector, rockhound, gold panner, hiker, mushroom picker, Quad
rider, snowmobiler, berry picker, wood gatherer, mountain biker, hunter,
trapper, fisherman or do you just simply enjoy the backcountry?
Chances are if you are a rural resident, a native kootenay born, or new
here, you probably do several of the above activities. It’s called lifestyle.
In other words, a multiple resource user. We all fit into more than one
category or another, that we all depend on natural
resources in rural BC is a fact.
This is the first step in recognising that wildlife (big
game) values may take precedence over other resource
issues and use.
In order to multiply our wildlife heritage we should be
managing our forest land base in such a way that will
multiply our big game numbers. If Finland, Norway,
and Sweden can, we can too.
This is no easy task. Wildlife must be recognized by all
users---its value and its use. We have a wildlife heritage,
a resource worth perpetuating. This requires better
stewardship and management of our crown lands.
This also requires access to these lands for all users.
The wilful and deliberate destruction of traditional forestry
and mining roads is detrimental to protecting our
forests, our wildlife resources, watersheds and denies
citizens access to our crown lands for recreational and
all other purposes.
Our goal is to have our government adopt an integrated
use philosophy, leading to increased big game
numbers, and to maintain backcountry access. To accomplish
this we require Integrated land use planning,
including access management, forest thinning, fire
management, predator management focused on big
game multiplication leading to future government policy.

Community Education & Workplace Training
Surface’ of the
Cold War Bunker
As the Cold War Bunker secretly lied
in waiting under the streets of Nelson,
powerful people wrote lists of names
- government officials, doctors, communications
staff, and other high-level
administrators - the people who would
be located, secured and promptly delivered
to the Bunker in the event of a
nuclear attack in the region. A similar
list in the modern era would reflect a
diversity of ages, genders, races, religions
and cultures; in the 1950s, the
lists were compiled almost completely
of white, middle-aged men.

The Castlegar Sunrise
2000 Rotary Club is excited
to present its first online
50/50 to the Kootenays and
beyond. With traditional in
person fundraising avenues
still on hold, club members
continue to seek new
and innovative ways to be
able to support local community
projects, while continuing
to uphold global commitments.
Fred Hughes leads
the committee for this venture.
He says, “We’re excited
about exploring online
fundraising, while our usual
in person events are not
possible, under BC Gaming
Event Licence #128189.
Net available proceeds will
be donated to local service
food security, mental health
and grief counselling.
All of these areas have
seen dramatic increases in
demand over the past year.”
Beneficiaries for the fundraiser
are New Life Church
Food Feast, Castlegar Hospice
Society, and BCSPCA
Castlegar Branch. Ticket
sales open on April 1, 2021
and close on May 31, 2021.
Tickets are $10 each, 3 for
$25, or 7 for $50. Maximum
50/50 payout will be
$16,000. The 50/50 is a draw
where the money received
in ticket sales is divided
evenly between the winner
and the charity. Ticket purchasers
must be 19 years
of age or older. Tickets can
be purchased online at:

Increased access to art therapy
Announcing the online
Inner Compass Art Therapy
Clinic, a simple and accessible
way for Canadians to find the
specific mental health support
they need by providing timely
access to affordable art therapy
The Kutenai Art Therapy
(KATIA), announced this
week the launch of the Inner
Compass Art Therapy Clinic,
an online service available at
that matches Canadian individuals,
businesses, teams, and
groups with qualified art therapists
from the comfort and
privacy of their own homes.
KATIA created Inner Compass
to help increase the
accessibility of high-quality
art therapy services at a time
when the mental health needs
of Canadians are greater than
ever and access to services is
limited by social distancing.
Even before the pandemic, 1
in 5 Canadians reported experiencing
mental health issues
or mental illness each year.
Since the onset of the pandemic,
according to the Canadian
Centre for Addiction and
Mental Health, 50% of Canadians
mental health and many have
seen their stress levels double.
While there are a growing
number of options for online
talk therapy, the non-verbal
nature of art therapy is particularly
suited to address topics
that people struggle to express
in words while providing an
experiential outlet for clients
to explore their challenges and
strengths. Art therapy is used
to address issues including
grief and loss, trauma, mental
health challenges, relationship
difficulties, addiction, and

Cold war bunker...

The opening of the Bunker
in 2020 has allowed
fresh air to stir through the
stale rooms, and with it the
opportunity for the whole
community - including and
especially those who would
not have been considered for
the lists - to experience the
space as it stood when it was
sealed, and respond to this
“We were so pleased to
be able to work with wonderful
local artists Zaynab
Ramirez, Shayna Jones and
Jesse Pineiro, and local filmmaker,
Carlo Alcos, to produce
an artistic response to
the Bunker which specifically
considers the social
injustices and accompanying
emotions evoked by the
