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 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.

UP! Our Upcycling Initiative

IMG_7346

 

Initially started by our wonderful group of volunteers, this initiative has taken off and we and some of our local vendors are making some truly lovely Upcycled Items that must be seen to be appreciated!

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 have gentle-sounding windchimes made from wooden kitchen utensils, hanging vases (Garden Gems) from spice and other small jars, seed savers with great images from old VHS holders, candlesticks from wine glasses, and so much more. Our selection changes constantly!

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 items as well as clean canning jars, lids, rings, and canning tools. All proceeds from donated items help support CGC’s community projects and initiatives drop into The Garden Pantry Store at 360 Duncan Street and our dedicated staff of volunteers will be more than happy to help you.
