Cowichan Green Community Society, (CGC) is a non-profit organization that has been focusing on environmental sustainability in the Cowichan Region since March 2004. CGC’s mandate is to improve food security by developing strong relationships with local food producers, increasing capacity for local food production (both urban and rural), and empowering people with the knowledge, skills and resources they need to feed their community.

They envision a food-secure Cowichan nourished by celebrating our connection to food, to our environment, and to each other.  Cowichan Green Community (CGC) cultivates resilient, inclusive and healthy local food systems and vibrant social fabric.    Our mission is to cultivate food, community, and resilience. CGC is a community leader, creating a future where our foundation is built on health and well-being; our environment, economy, and social fabric are resilient and inclusive; where they celebrate our connection to the earth and to each other. CGC is also a hub for social innovation, community engagement and community building. CGC creates positive change through education, regenerative projects, and celebration. CGC’s Guiding Principles are evident in all of the work that They do: They value inclusion, responsibility, commitment, positive solutions, diversity, collaboration, and environmental reverence. Our food security projects include the creation of food policy documents such as the Cowichan Food Charter and the Cowichan Food Security Plan, projects like Kin Park Youth Urban Farm, a Food Recovery Project to re-distribute excess grocery store produce, FruitSave – a fruit gleaning project – , the Cowichan Grown Farm Map, the Farm & Food Hub, and several community gardens. They also offer educational workshops, events and organize Duncan’s annual Seedy Sundays to promote the role of agriculture in our community.
