The Resiliency Project
Planting Seeds Of Community Connection.
The Resiliency Project is a community-driven rewilding effort in the Cowichan Valley. Our vision is to create a network of pollinator meadows throughout our community, to create habitat, increase local biodiversity, and engage the community in nature-based education. We are also working to encourage local residents to plant native wildflower species in their own yards and gardens. Planting native plants is a powerful act of ecological healing, offering essential sources of food to a huge diversity of beneficial insects, including pollinators. As climate instability increases, this is a meaningful action we can take as a community to mitigate localized biodiversity collapse.
Over the past two years, we have planted five native wildflower meadows in community parks and public shared green spaces with a committed group of volunteers. We invite all members of the community who are interested in rewilding to come out and get involved in this local movement!
There are always volunteer positions open, and we have ongoing opportunities through workshops and work-bees to come out and learn and get your hands in the dirt! For more information about these opportunities, please email email@example.com.

Community Native Seed Bank
Located at the Cowichan Farm and Food Hub, 2431 Beverly St. We have been working on building the community native seed bank, which now features 25 different native species, all of which are fully accessible and free to community members working on rewilding projects. The seeds are stored in our temperature and humidity-controlled seed vault. These seeds are gathered ethically and carefully by our great team of staff and volunteers and stored with care to preserve their vitality.
To access the seed bank, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or come by and visit us. We are open Tuesday – Saturday, 9 am – 4:30 pm.
At the Resiliency Project, we work to engage the community in the work that we are doing. We run ongoing workshops focused on rewilding, pollinators, and native plants. You can also find workshops focused on earth-based textile explorations, such as basket weaving using invasive species.
We have created a collaborative relationship with the Quamichan School Science 9 teachers, working with their students on the “Healthy Waterways” curriculum, which is a program developed by the Cowichan Land Trust to educate and engage students in their local watershed. Through this collaboration, we have engaged with over 120 grade 9 students, working on the wetland spiral project and the boulevard meadow in front of the Farm and Food Hub.
The Resiliency Project has also worked with several other schools to provide nature-based hands-on educational opportunities. Some of these activities include: building native bee houses, planting native wildflowers, gathering seeds for the community seed bank, and sowing these seeds in meadow areas.
