Good news! Heartwood has some Vancity and CRD funding to initiate a GULF ISLANDS CO-OP !
The purpose of this new CO-OP is “to co-operatively support Southern Gulf Islands (SGI) Producers of Education, Arts, Food, Goods and More to sustainably and profitably SELL what we create, AND to support island residents, visitors and others to sustainably BUY from island sources – for mutual, year-round, economic and community benefit.” You can click HERE to see the latest CO-OP updates.
The first initiative of the GULF ISLANDS CO-OP is a new GULF ISLANDS CALENDAR of EVENTS. This is to enable potential visitors from all over, plus folks from nearby islands, to be able to find our amazing educational, artistic, musical, and other happenings.
Heartwood is just getting these projects rolling, but we imagine a day when the CO-OP can stand on its own!
