Our membership is exclusive. We invite and accept only the best of the Okanagan and Similkameen region as our members. For us the 'best' means:

  • Local businesses selling, growing and making local therefore characteristically Okanagan products
  • Pride in craft - whatever the service or product, we love to see focus and passion
  • Products that 'shine' - the products that make us Okanagan folks proud
  • Great hospitality - in service we seek welcoming and gracious ambassadors of our region
  • Unique experiences - what can only be found in the Okanagan, and is worth 'writing home about'

We choose a membership structure for all of our shared content, to build a partnership with our community. We build relationships with each of our members, and get to know the uniqueness of each excellent experience and product available to you, our readers, visitors, locals and friends far and near.
