Pacific Rim College has been named a Finalist for the 2017 EcoStar Awards in the category of Food Security! We are thrilled to receive this honour in recognition of the programs and services PRC offers in both the School of Holistic Nutrition and the School of Permaculture Design. The Diploma of Holistic Nutrition is the most comprehensive on-site program in North America, while the Permaculture Design and Resilient Ecosystems Diploma is a globally-unique program offered on two campus farms on the Saanich Peninsula of Vancouver Island.
The Vancouver Island EcoStar Awards recognize outstanding environmental achievements and leadership by businesses, organizations and individuals. These awards are given to local champions of initiatives, projects and innovations that contribute to a vibrant future in which our communities and ecology both prosper.
Last year Pacific Rim College won the EcoStar Award for Social Impact. The 2017 award winners in 19 categories will be announced at a November 16 award gala.
