Invest in Venables Valley

British Columbia, Canada



The Venables Valley area is located 114 kilometres west of the TNRD's largest city centre, Kamloops. Additionally, Venables Valley is located only 25 kilometres south of another major city centre, Ashcroft.

The Venables Valley area is committed to simplicity, sustainability and spirituality.

In 1982 members of the Hare Krishna Vaishnava community in Vancouver purchased 1,700 acres in the Venables Valley region of B.C.. They were seeking a simpler way of life and an alternative to raising their children in an urban setting. In the ensuing twenty five years some fifty families have settled or attempted to settle in the area. Some thirty houses have been constructed.
