Over the past year, we’ve been cultivating coFood Vancouver as a community of food projects with a mission to provide opportunities for personal connection among food-loving changemakers.

We’re pleased to invite you to one of our monthly events that stimulate conversation, and ask questions about our local food systems.


Movie Night & Community Talk

In September we’re hosting a screening of INHABIT: A Permaculture Perspective. Together, we will dig in to the question of how permaculture can improve the projects closest to our hearts.

Monday, September 19

Welcome at 6:30. Talk at 7. Screening at 7:30.

265 East 4th Ave (between Main & Scotia)

INHABIT explores the many environmental and agricultural issues facing us today and examines solutions that are being applied using the ecological design process called ‘Permaculture’.

Watch the trailer.

RSVP by September 10. If you want to connect with us but can’t attend this event, please subscribe to our invitation list.

In order to respect everyone’s time, we ask that you arrive well before 7:00 p.m.

We encourage you to bring a snack and beverage of your choice, as well as your best ideas about what the local food movement should look like. Please bring your own blanket or chair for this outdoor event, and a donation toward the $75 licensing fee for the film. If it rains, we’ll move the event indoors to a location across the street.

collaboration + Food

coFood will be hosting an event every month to share food and focus on a specific topic. We’ll invite people to present on food projects and issues that matter to them, followed by group conversations. We will invite all of you to join us, and we encourage you to spread the word and invite people who inspire you.

In the spirit of getting to know one another, we’ll go “beyond the business card” by sharing everyone’s contact information after the event. We hope this will allow more freedom for people to explore genuine connections in the time we have together at coFood events, and beyond.

We’ll also be engaging in community actions that expand our collective knowledge and support the urban food scene, like field trips and garden work parties. As a group, we recently groomed the Queen Alexandra school garden for a summer celebration.

If you would like to involve us in your permaculture project, please contact us with your ideas for future community actions.

We are always looking for volunteers to help us connect with food projects on Facebook, to present at our events, to help plan our events, and do all the little things it takes to keep a community going.
