Flour, salt, an heirloom sourdough starter and some creativity are all Isabella Harmel needed to start a fundraiser for a cause close to her heart – Camp Pheonix. She sells her homemade sourdough bread to help children “who couldn’t go camping normally, either for social or financial reasons, and it gives them the opportunity to have a summer camp experience that was very important for me when I was a kid. I went to a few summer camps,” said Harmel, a BC Youth Parliament Member. The five-day camp is an initiative created by Youth Parliament Members so that everyone can make memories at summer camp. It will be held in Sook, BC this year. “It’s quite an expensive project, so we’re dependent on our members like Isabella to raise funds for this project,” said Abby Head, Member of the British Columbia Youth Parliament. The camp costs thousands of dollars each year. So Harmel came up with the idea of ​​selling sourdough breads and donate the funds to the camp.” I bake bread in my spare time, it’s kind of a hobby for me,” Harmel said. “I thought I could bake some bread and give it to some neighbors and your family. That’s when it all started on our little local Facebook group and then there was a lot of interest. “With orders on the rise, the baker needed help fulfilling the orders. to help. Harmel collects the sourdough bread that was made for him fresh and given to him by The Bread Co. on Bernard Avenue in Kelowna “I love it when people want to make a difference in the world… I thought what a great time for us to help support Isabella,” Bronswyk said.
