The Future Of Food Is Growing!
Cowichan Green Community Society (CGC), is a non-profit organization that has been focusing on environmental sustainability in the Cowichan Region since 2004.
A Hub For...
CGC is a hub for social innovation, community engagement and community building. CGC creates positive change through education, regenerative projects, and celebration.
CGC’s mission is to build community, health, and environmental stewardship. CGC leads several successful social enterprises including CGC’s building which is a 20,000-square-foot commercial/residential building that includes 20 residential suites, two commercial businesses as well as CGC’s core operations and a commercial kitchen. This building, purchased in 2013, has received several awards including the City of Duncan’s Residential and Commercial Building Awards and the Real Estate Foundation’s Non-Profit Land Award.
CGC also operates a successful edible landscaping business, an educational farm/garden magazine, the Cowichan Farm & Food Hub, and the reFRESH Marketplace grocery store. All these social enterprises are successful in generating income to support other CGC programming.
CGC is a community leader, creating a future where our foundation is built on health and well-being; our environment, economy and social fabric are resilient and inclusive; where we celebrate our connection to the earth and to each other.
We envision a food secure Cowichan nourished by celebrating our connection to food, to our environment and to each other. CGC cultivates resilient, inclusive and healthy local food systems and vibrant social fabric. Our Mission is to cultivate food, community, and resilience.
