Tuesday morning we were joined by Cindy Masters who serves as the Executive Director for The Vernon & District Community Land Trust (Land Trust).
 
The Vernon Land Trust is a not for profit organization committed to providing affordable housing for the North Okanagan.  Current and developing projects center around providing safe, clean and attainable housing.
 
They work closely with a number of other not for profits to aid not only those who need a helping hand financially but additionally those that require more help but can live independently.
 
They have a number of new projects that have either broken ground or are in developing to help make housing affordable.
 
One area of need that was identified is the landscaping at Creekside Village.  Unfortunately this does not fall under the scope of some of their funding and they need to ask the community for assistance for this area.
