Welcome to the Gulf Islands FOOD CO-OP initiative of BC, Canada!

We focus on the unique and wonderful FOOD PRODUCERS originating from the Southern Gulf Islands of Pender, Mayne, Saturna and Galiano – within the traditional territories of the Coast Salish First Nations.  Initially hosted by the Heartwood Folk School, islanders are working together on three collaborative projects:

 

1. GULF ISLANDS FOOD CO-OP proposal:  to provide key practical supports for Southern Gulf Islands (SGI) Food Producers, their uniquely healthy food, and thriving island sustainability!  (plus SGI Agriculture Strategy follow-up)

 

2. Gulf Islands FOOD REGISTRY:  listing food producers of all sizes and types, supporters/eaters, food groups, plus co-operating organizations (REGISTER to hear more about the Co-op, or contact info@gulfislandsfoodco-op.org)

 

3. Food Co-op CALENDAR for food and co-op related events, in our warm and friendly Southern Gulf Islands of British Columbia
