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).

 

Similar GALIANO ISLAND CO-OP Presentation: Sunday, October 29 (1:00 to 3:30 pm), at the South End Galiano Community Hall (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!
