The Garden Pantry Store

The Garden Pantry Store is now an even more interesting and eclectic retail store. It’s well worth a visit! We’re now on Facebook! Click to take a look at our current showcases and upcoming events!

THE GARDEN PANTRY VENDOR SHOWCASE

We support Island artisans and specialty food producers by providing a full service retail environment for them to “showcase” their products! We charge a minimal monthly space rental fee and provide all the advantages of a high traffic brick and mortar retail space including all marketing, merchandising, and inventory control. There are no extra fees or commissions and our vendors receive 100% of their monthly sales. Our vendors are a talented and interesting group and the product mixes in the store change constantly with additional products or flavours being added to their line-ups. For more information on becoming a Showcase Vendor please contact leslie@cowichangreencommunity.org.Store photo for web

The Think Again Group, Our Upcycling Initiative

Upcycling for web

UPcycling: to reuse (discarded objects or materials) in such a way as to create a product of a higher quality or value than the original.

We are currently showcasing Upcycled Men’s shirts into great looking and fun aprons, teaspoons into Garden Markers with beautiful garden verses stamped into them, gorgeous Garden bird baths and feeders from Upcycled glass, calendars and thrift store art books into re-usable gift bags and so much more!  Please come in and visit us soon!

TOOL AND CANNING JAR DONATIONS

CGC is excited that we offer a different option for the community to support an even more sustainable lifestyle. Community members can both purchase and/or drop off clean and in working order tools as well as clean canning jars, lids, and rings.  All donated items help support CGC’s community projects and initiatives. Please drop into The Garden Pantry Store at 360 Duncan Street and our dedicated staff of volunteers will be more than happy to help you.
