January: Inspiring the Next Generation
We kicked off the year with a bang by being a guest speaker at Okanagan College, Kelowna Campus.
It was a privilege to share knowledge and experiences with bright young minds, igniting their passion for entrepreneurship and personal growth.
March: A Fresh Look, A Stronger Identity
Change is in the air! We underwent a rebranding process, breathing new life into our visual identity. We changed our name from Kelp Forest Co to Grow and Behold Digital. The fresh and vibrant new look truly reflects our dynamic spirit and commitment to serving you better.
April: Nurturing Our Planet
We demonstrated our commitment to environmental stewardship by organizing a community clean-up event for Earth Day. Together, we showed our love for our planet and contributed to creating a cleaner and greener world.
June: Giving Back, Creating Change
We took a big step forward in our mission to make a difference. Starting in June, we pledged to give back 1% of our earnings through the Grow and Give Back program.
By supporting the causes we believe in, we're making a positive impact together.
July: Empowering Workshops, Online Edition
Summer was sizzling with knowledge and growth! We hosted a series of free online workshops, covering a range of topics to empower our community. From website designs to marketing strategies, these workshops were packed with valuable insights and actionable tips.
September: Connecting in Person
We were thrilled to bring our workshops to life in Lumby. Hosting our first in-person workshops was an incredible experience. We connected, learned, and grew together, reinforcing the strong bonds within our community.
November: Recognizing Innovation
We were beyond honoured to be nominated for four categories at the Lumby Business Excellence Awards. And guess what? We won the runner-up position in the Innovation category! This recognition fuels our passion to continue innovating and serving you with excellence.
