A Note From OUR Team:

As the season progresses the garden is beginning to get more and more lush with so many plants and fruits on the brink of ripening! It is a beautiful sight to behold and it fills us with a deep sense of gratitude as we put our hands to the earth and see the magic that is being woven through our interactions with nature. It is a gift to be on this land and experience the deep connection that can exist between food and the people who nurture and cultivate it. This connection has been deepened through OUR permaculture practices and is a constantly evolving learning process. The food we share with you is a labour of love, and we hope you are feeling the difference of what you’re consuming deep within.

On another note, all of you have been so conscientious with returning your boxes, jars, egg cartons and containers! Thank you for supporting this process and helping us reduce waste and consumption as much as possible. Every little bit of effort and thought you put into supporting this community program counts.

We would also like to ask that you please avoid petting the farm dogs when you arrive on-site, so that we can maintain our animal bio-safe zone and COVID-19 protocol.

~ With love and gratitude from OUR ECOVILLAGE

We can begin each day by doing small things at the local level, like planting community gardens or looking out for our neighbours. That is how change takes place in living systems, not from above but from within, from many local actions occurring simultaneously.  ~Grace Lee Boggs

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.
