January 2016
The Cowichan Green Community has decided to kick-off the New Year (albeit a little bit late) with a brand new newsletter format. We know that people's time is short, so our new newsletter will feature our three top stories and events for the month ahead and contain information on how community members can get involved with our work. We have also created a "Community Bulletin Board" for local events and listings. 

If you're interested in reading more about CGC's work, feel free to check-out our website which has a ton of information on our current projects, events, and news. We hope you enjoy.

In gratitude,
CGC Team

Community Bulletin Board
Diversity is the stronghold of a resilient community. Like-mindedness doesn't always mean we agree with each other about everything. CGC shares events that are submitted to us by our community that we feel may be of interest to our members. However, we do not necessarily endorse or actively support the events posted on the Community Events Calendar.
