Located just outside CGC’s offices at The Station, 360 Duncan St., the garden is full of beautiful edible and medicinal plants that were planted together to create an amazing, diverse, and intriguing demonstration of food forestry.

The plant selection for the garden was carefully considered in order to mimic the ecological processes of a forest. Plants chosen included pollinator attractors, nutrient accumulators, and soil stabilizers.

We invite you to take the time to walk around the paths, breathe in the fresh garden air and relax on a bench under our pergola. We also welcome volunteer help to maintain the food forest gardens, contact ceres@cowichangreencommunity.org.

The food forest gardens were created by CGC staff and over 200 hours of volunteer time. The project was funded by the Employment Program of BC and was completed in July 2014. Cowichan Green Community staff and volunteers have since been taking care of the site and harvesting the berries, herbs, and nutritious leafy greens it now produces!
