Hello from OUR ECOVILLAGE! This last week has seen a couple changes. We have a new volunteer arrive, Arnaud Raibaldi, who drove all the way from Quebec although he is originally from France. He will mostly be working in the garden with us for the remainder of the season! We are also going to be saying goodbye to OUR Educational CSA co-coordinator and intern, Angelica Fisher, who is leaving the village this weekend to complete her last year of University! She has been here since May helping to plan, create and put some extra love into your produce boxes this season as well as co-write and edit the weekly Newsletter. She is going to miss seeing all of your faces every Thursday and wanted to express her gratitude for all of your support and the connections she was able to make with each of you ❤ 

We also have tomatoes and tomatillos galore ripening in the greenhouses! So check out the salsa verde recipe below and look out for the different varieties of tomatoes you will be receiving in the coming weeks, including:

  • Yellow Ping Pong
  • Black Krim
  • Green Zebra
  • Indigo Rose
  • Black Cherry
  • Caiman
  • Moneymaker
  • Sweet Million
  • Pink Bumble Bee
  • Yellow Stuffer
  • And MUCH MORE!

With love and abundance, OUR ECOVILLAGE

Reminder Request: please consider bringing back/donating any canning jars you might have (we will take the rings as well). We continue to try and be great recyclers with all we can for containers, jars, egg cartons, etc.

Land acknowledgment

OUR ECOVILLAGE is situated on unceded Indigenous lands. The Coast Salish Peoples are the guardians of these lands and waters where we live, work, pray, and play. Quw’utsun (Cowichan) is a historical place of gathering and Na’tsa’ maht Shqwaluwun/”one-heart one-mind” for many Indigenous peoples.

OUR ECOVILLAGE is committed to regenerate land and all ecosystems while acknowledging and respecting Indigenous knowledge that ensures thriving for all beings; we call this Permaculture.

OUR ECOVILLAGE is dedicated to continuously educating ourselves and our communities about the history and peoples of OUR bio-region, to assist in decolonization and re-villaging as a path towards peacemaking, from local to global.
