Volunteer With US!

Cowichan Green Community Society, (CGC) is a non-profit organization that has been focusing on environmental sustainability in the Cowichan Region since March 2004.

Ways to Volunteer

Volunteering for Cowichan Green Community is more than just a task or experience – it has a real impact.

Our volunteers support all aspects of CGC. From the farms to fundraising, from event support to the reFRESH Cowichan Marketplace, and from the kitchen to FruitSave. Learn more about how you can make a difference with your time and talent.

Celebrating Our Volunteers

Our vision is to create a world where no one in the Cowichan Valley is food insecure. This is only achievable if we work collectively with people united by the same goals. We deeply appreciate the contributions of our committed and generous volunteers who enable us to support community members here in the Cowichan Valley. Join us in celebrating our volunteers and the impact they are making.

Who Volunteers For Us.

An integral piece in providing so many programs are CGC’s members whose dedication, devotion, and diligence strengthen the vast CGC community. Susan Smith has been an active member and volunteer at CGC for over 15 years as well as a member of the Food Security Coalition for 10 years. She strongly believes in the ethos at CGC around food security and ending food waste.

An older farmer once told her that “it takes more than a weekend to grow some peas.”  And that it does. Susan knows the importance of passing on the skills of food production and cooking to the younger people she works with in the garden, the kitchen and the store.  Sewing sheets into tubes to edge gardens, cooking and serving meals in the kitchen, stocking the reFRESH store, and attending meetings with politicians to raise awareness of the food security issues on behalf of CGC are a few of the ways that Susan is a liaison between the work of CGC and the broader community.

Sandy McPherson

For the past 10+ years, Sandy McPherson has been a dedicated volunteer and friend of CGC and the many community members we work with. CGC would not be what it is today without Sandy by our side. The Cowichan community would be missing a significant bright light without Sandy spreading her love, dedication, and inspiration. We are so grateful that she chose to move into the community from the Highlands near Victoria. She has definitely brought her fire and inspiration north and we truly hope she never leaves.
