Some of you may already know me. My name is David Stott. For the last five years I have coordinated a food producing and income generating therapeutic community garden near Victoria called Feeding Ourselves and Others. I also serve on the board of an organization called VIDEA, which since 1977 has worked in B.C. as well as in five countries in east and southern Africa to support international development and social justice initiatives.
What we are doing here is, in both cases, helping to establish a more secure foundation for a better, more sustainable and more just world. I would like to invite you to consider supporting the many initiatives taken by VIDEA through this worthy fundraising campaign.
