December 1st monthly meeting 2016.

Its nearly the end of the year. As I write this, frost is thick on the ground.

Winter!   Browsing Seed catalogues, sorting and packing saved seeds, keeping warm in front of the fire…. and lots of parties.

This December meeting is a Potluck!   Bring a plate of goodies to share, with a small label noting ingredients, and we will have a winter party!

We will also have two guests, Summer Joy and Jim Web to talk about GIANT vegetable competitions in Great Britain. Something that we could possibly do here at the CVEX Fall Fair.

The meeting takes place at Creekside Commons, Lambeth Drive, Courtenay and will begin at 6.00pm with the feast and the talk will follow.


Welcome to the Comox Valley Growers and Seed Savers website. This is your “home-grown” resource for do-it-yourself organic food production and seed saving in the Comox Valley!

We now have our own hand powered seed winnower (to separate the seed from the chaff) and use of an electric seed thresher (to separate the grain from the stalk).  See more under Resources.


Saving seeds is fun and rewarding in many ways.  Come join us and see for yourself !


Here are some of the features of this website:

  • New growers and veterans alike benefit from our cornucopia of gardening tips, written or chosen by local fellow gardeners with experience in this area.
  • Learn to save seeds such as tomato and lettuce – it’s easy and rewarding!
  • Find out about events like Seedy Saturday in March, Plant Sale in May, Garden Tours, and our schedule of Monthly Meetings. You won’t want to miss them.
