Green Community hosts virtual food conference

Food Connections is an annual conference intended to support food security efforts on Vancouver Island, and this year on Wednesday, Nov. 19, you can be a part of it with Cowichan Green Community.

This year’s theme is Food Security in Rural and Remote Communities, so the conference is going online to support participation from those living in remote communities on the Island and across the province.

Coordinated in partnership with PlanH, and the Island Health Food Security Hub Network, several host sites were chosen, including Cowichan. The conference will be screened from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., at CGC’s office (360 Duncan St., Duncan). There will be three webinars, with each session followed by offline group discussions at the host site.

Guests are welcome to attend one, or all of the webinars. To register, just fill out the online registration form linked to Cowichan Green Community’s website.

Space is limited. For more information on this event, contact Vanessa Goodall at vanessa@cowichangreencommunity.org or 250-748-8506.
