Since August of 2015, shoppers in the Cowichan region have been able to buy local produce & groceries from the convenience of their own home via www.cow-op.ca, the region’s first online farmers’ marketplace of locally grown and processed food.

A recent survey showed that 92% of Members joined simply because they believe in CGC’s mission and share a concern in addressing food security in the Cowichan region. If you feel the same way and are looking to connect with the community, becoming a Member is an easy first step.

With every New Year, we tend to reflect back and work to improve on years past. As a non-profit society, CGC is presented with new financial challenges that our Staff and Board work hard to overcome.

Two of our goals for the year are to become financially self-sustaining and, of course, continue to provide an inclusive space that supports and engages the community to connect and grow local food. Our Membership Program has the potential to achieve both of these goals.

What does it mean to be a Member?

Members of the Cowichan Green Community, make an annual financial contribution which helps support community programs that receive limited funding such as the KinPark Youth Urban Farm, FruitSave and administration of the Farmers’ Market Nutritional Coupon Program. In return, we offer benefits such as discounts on workshops or select events.

Membership is valid from January 1st to December 31st and costs:

Besides all the benefits listed below, the added bonus is meeting other community-minded Members who grow and support local food!

Become a member today!

Membership includes:

  • Free access to select events such as Duncan Seedy Sunday,
  • discounts on other events and educational workshops,
  • 10% discount on our reFRESH products at our reFRESH Marketplace, and
  • an opportunity to vote at our Annual General Meeting.

*Please note that if you are one of our monthly donors, you are automatically a member.

But most of all, your support will:

  • create a stronger voice for change in our community;
  • help fund locally focused programs that make our home a more sustainable place to eat, live, work and play; and
  • provide opportunities for members like yourself to get involved.
