Explore Cowichan’s edible landscape

The Cowichan Green Community’s 2014 Farm and Edible Garden Tour takes place over two days, Saturday, Aug. 16, and Sunday, Aug. 17 this year, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. both days.

It’s a great opportunity to either showcase your edible landscape or to make your way around some of the Cowichan region’s most delicious foodscapes.

There will be five or more gardens and farms to visit each day.

"Every gardener and farmer has such inspirational stories to share, and that is the focus of this year’s Edible Garden Farm Tour which has been expanded to two days," explained Alyssa Loucks, tour organizer.

"It is important that these stories be told to others, so that the knowledge of growing food can continue to flourish and be passed down to others. These gardens and farms capture the knowledge and creativity of their designers, which will leave everyone inspired to go home and start digging."

This is a self-guided tour. Tickets are $15 for CGC members, $20 for non-members and $30 for couples. Anyone under 18 is free. For more information, or to buy tickets, contact Alyssa at 250-748-8506 or stop by the CGC office at 360 Duncan St. or email Alyssa@cowichangreencommunity.org
