Share the Harvest Garden

In our Community Garden, LUSH Valley provides opportunities for education, mentorship and community connection while improving food security for our local population. The Share the Harvest Community Garden is located on the corner of 6th St and Harmston Ave in downtown Courtenay and hosts a combination of allotment and communal plots for gardeners.

Vanier Educational Garden

The Vanier Garden, located in the Comox Valley Exhibition Grounds, produces fresh fruits and vegetables for our Good Food Box and Hot Meal Programs. In addition, this Garden hosts the LUSH Valley Seed Library, a place for collecting and distributing a variety of seeds, with aims to protect genetic diversity in our food system and promote public access to seeds.

Grow Food Everywhere – Gardener Support During the Covid-19 Pandemic

Brought to you by Lush Valley Food Action Society in partnership with the Comox Valley Food Policy Council, the Grow Food Everywhere Program facilitates the sharing of tangible and intangible resources between gardeners in the Comox Valley. The goal of this Program is to help members of the community collaborate to ensure that everyone has access to the resources and information they need to grow their own food.

COVID-19 has created unprecedented interruptions to our day-to-day lives and added obstacles to our already challenged food distribution lines. In response, many people are turning to the land in an effort to feed themselves, their families, and their communities. LUSH Valley supports this shift by connecting and empowering individuals to get out there and “Grow Food Everywhere”.

If you have resources to share, are looking support, or want to connect with the community, please check out our Grow Food Everywhere Facebook group or email us at communitygarden@lushvalley.org.
