Our Inspiration

"It is no longer possible to maintain the belief that the approach to social and economic development to which the materialistic conception of life has given rise, is capable of meeting humanity"s needs... Unless the development of society finds a purpose beyond the mere amelioration of material conditions, it will fail of attaining even these goals. That purpose must be sought in spiritual dimensions of life." -The Prosperity of Humankind, Baha"i International Community
In November 2003, Cowichan Green Community initiated the idea of starting a community garden, Jubilee Gardens, in Centennial Park in Duncan, B.C. Cowichan Community Land Trust and the Vancouver Foundation backed this dream and made it a reality. The two people who supervise the garden currently are Carol Sim and Christine Pollard. Carol is the "Garden Mentor" who tends the garden and helps the people gardening there. Christine is the Project Manager. Currently, both staff are funded by the Vancouver Foundation but only for a limited time. The jubilee Garden committee feels that through mentoring this initial group of gardeners, these gardeners will pass on their training to new gardeners and garden will be self-sufficient.
