Welcome to the Gulf Islands FOOD CO-OP of British Columbia, 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.  After a dynamic process of collaborative planning, islanders are coming together on three collaborative projects:

 

1. GULF ISLANDS FOOD CO-OP (summary):  to provide key practical supports for Southern Gulf Islands (SGI) Food Producers, uniquely healthy food for eaters, and also local food sustainability!  (plus SGI Food & Agriculture Strategy follow-up)

 

2. Gulf Islands FOOD REGISTRY:  listing food producers of all sizes and types, island food groups, plus now we’re developing a related Ecommerce system

 

3. Food Co-op CALENDAR:  for food and co-op events, in our warm and friendly Southern Gulf Islands of BC (coming soon: Education on Soil Building, and also Indigenous Food Creation & Practices).

 

We invite you to dig into the key links or the green menu items above, and to contact info@gulfislandsfoodco-op.org with any questions.  Our islands are stronger when we co-operate!
