LUSH VALLEY CAPITAL FUNDRAISING CAMPAIGN:
SUPPORT LUSH VALLEY IN SECURING OUR ‘FOREVER HOME’
As the needs of our community have grown, LUSH Valley has grown to meet them. Throughout the past year we have responded quickly and effectively to this unprecedented crisis brought on by the global pandemic by expanding our programs in a big way.
Now the time has come for LUSH Valley to put down roots in a permanent location so that we may continue to respond to the ever-changing needs of our community.
With the support of the LUSH Valley Board of Directors, a potential building has been found and the offer has been accepted! In order to secure the property, we have launched our first-ever Capital Fundraising Campaign. Over the next three years, LUSH Valley will be working to raise $500,000.00.

We are incredibly grateful to our partners at the City of Courtenay, the CVRD and elsewhere who have provided us public spaces to operate in over the past year and a half. The generosity of our community partners in sharing their spaces over the past four years has allowed us to operate our many programs throughout the Comox Valley.
Thank you to everyone who joined us at our Farm to Table Fundraiser at Amara Farm on Sunday, September 12th.
The Farmer’s Kitchen Food Truck served a fresh, delicious and 100% plant-based gluten-free meal at both the 12:00 noon and 5:00 pm seatings. Paired with the five-course meal was wine by Beaufort Winery, beer by Hoyne Brewery and fresh-pressed apple juice made with local, LUSH Valley apples.
The event also hosted live music by the Busheikin & Villette Duo, a farm tour by Arzeena Hamir and flowers by Dirty Girls Flowers. Guests enjoyed an afternoon or evening of community, connection and in traditional LUSH Valley fashion, delicious, local food.

In partnership with The Farmer’s Kitchen Food Truck, LUSH Valley is hosting a Meals For A Deal Fundraiser Dinner on Wednesday evenings from 4:00-8:00pm all summer long. The Truck will be on location at 1255 McPhee Ave (behind Relay Event & Party Rental) every week serving up fresh, locally-inspired meals, for a cause!
The Farmer’s Kitchen Food Truck draws inspiration from a variety of global street vendors and puts a vibrant, fresh twist on dishes by collaborating with Comox Valley farmers and chefs to draw local, in-season ingredients. Each week’s menu will take on a different theme and will accommodate a different set of dietary preferences. All meals will include four courses: an appetizer, a main, a side and a dessert, all for $35.00!
Tickets are available for pre-sale at a discount, but walk-ins are also welcome to order a la carte. All proceeds from this fundraiser support LUSH Valley’s mission to secure a permanent office, program centre and warehouse space.
