Water, food on special Cowichan event agenda

The Cowichan Valley chapter of the Council of Canadians is inviting residents to a special event on Oct. 1 that will focus on food and water in the Cowichan Valley.

The evening will feature two speakers, Rodger Hunter of the Cowichan Watershed group and Dan Ferguson of the Cowichan Agricultural Society.

"We are lucky enough to live in the beautiful and bountiful Cowichan Valley and also want to see that our valley remains a wonderful place to live, especially in the face of pressure to develop scarce farmland, changes to the Agricultural Land Reserve rules, and increasing threat of water scarcity, as evidenced in this year’s low river levels," explained Donna Cameron, chairperson of the Cowichan chapter of the Council of Canadians.

The presentations will be followed by group discussions on how the community can work together more effectively to ensure the Valley remains sustainable.

The event runs from 6:30-9 p.m. at the Duncan United Church hall on Ingram Street. It is co-sponsored by the Duncan United Church Social Justice Committee.

Entry is free, but attendees are asked to bring finger food to share.
