Vancity CO-OP Presentation & Island CO-OP Proposal Discussion (Pender)
October 14 @ 12:00 pm
Come learn about the power of co-ops, and the CO-OP PROPOSAL for the Gulf Islands! An expert associated with Vancity Credit Union will make an educational presentation and answer questions, about the benefits, flexibility, and challenges of co-ops. Then there will be a community discussion about the GULF ISLANDS Co-op Proposal – for food producers and broader island sustainability! (see more HERE)
PENDER ISLAND CO-OP Presentation: Saturday, October 14 (12:00 noon to 2:30 pm including discussion, plus food/snacks!), at the Pender Community Hall Upstairs (4418 Bedwell Harbour Road). No fee, all welcome, including children with supervising parents. Young/new food growers and entrepreneurs encouraged to attend!
This Pender CO-OP presentation follows the Heartwood Folk School AGM (10:15 to 11:30 am, same day and location, see HERE). The CO-OP talk is also part of Heartwood’s new class series on “Making a Sustainable Living on an Island” (see HERE).

DEAR MAYNE & SATURNA RESIDENTS: There will be future GULF ISLANDS CO-OP presentations and discussions on your islands as well! However, for October we could only get the Vancity CO-OP experts out to Pender and Galiano. We’ve tried to make the October 14 Pender presentation fit for you to come fairly easily by ferry. Let’s start some inter-island discussions!
