In the WORKS…
FCA has funded their first of may projects for bettering our community through grant monies that have been allocated to our community. This is just first of many projects that FCA will begin to fund based off of feedback that the community participated in through surveys and community meetings. To see what other projects you can be part of, see our Projects page!

In efforts to inspire safe disposal of yard waste, reduce yard debris burning. and reduce wildfire risks, FCA funded the July Chipping event. With Funding from FCA, this event was able to be held over a 2-day course and served 57 residence and removed over 16 TONS of hazardous wildfire fuel from Columbia Valley area and/or redistribute to community gardens, local food banks and individuals in the form of wood chips for gardens. In order to be able to serve so many community members with this event, you had to register, have ALL branches facing same direction at the road in a neat pile. No branChe’s or limbs greater than 6” in diameter, no root wads, stumps, lawn clippings, raked leaves, rocks, trash or any non woody items. Each residence were given up to 15 minutes for chipping at their homes before the chipping crew moved onto the next registered home.
Pictures and Information coming soon!
We will continue to work with the community to fund projects that serve ALL of the community! Come join us!
