Led by a group of community volunteers, the Burton Community Learning Centre (BCLC) offers programs and services to promote learning and wellness. The Centre is available to Arrow Lakes residents for activities related to fitness, education and learning, community information, and arts and culture.
The Burton Food Access program was created to help bridge the gap between food security and food insecurity. The Burton Food Access program has created a one-acre Community Garden space in Burton, BC – by the Burton Historical Campground. The one-acre garden houses space for community members from Burton and surrounding areas. There are raised beds available for community members with limited mobility. A section of the garden is currently grown with the produce available for community members to access. In addition to this, there are kitchen upgrades being completed at the Burton Community Hall, and a small food pantry is currently in the works.
