Grist Mill in Keremeos is looking for ideas for future events

Submissions for the contest are still open until Dec. 7.

The Grist Mill in Keremeos is looking for ideas from the community on how to use their site next year.

The heritage site wants to know what people’s 2020 visions are for the Grist Mill. Whether that vision is a party, a farmers’ market, or any other kind of event, the Grist Mill wants to hear people’s ideas for how to use their space.

“Enthusiasm is key,” said Chris Mathieson, the owner of the Grist Mill. “The idea can be anything, and it’s the ideas we haven’t thought of that are the most interesting, because anything that people come up with, you have to be able to drive it.”

Submissions can make use of any of the site’s gardens and equipment, including the commercial kitchen.

The Grist Mill will work with the submitters to bring their visions to fruition.

Submissions for the contest are still open until Dec. 7. More information and questions about the contest can be sent to Submissions can be made at
