Growing Opportunities

Our Vision

Community Farming 

Growing Opportunities Farm Community Co-op believes in a community-based food system that is equitable, empowering and capable of regenerating the land through hands-on opportunities for people of all skills and abilities. 

Our projects celebrate diversity and strive to inspire collaboration through the combined contributions of individuals in our work force, community organizations and a growing base of volunteers. ​


Our History

Established in 2013

Formed in 2008, Growing Opportunities is a non-profit farming co-operative.

In 2009 Growing Opportunities Farm Project began farming with an all-volunteer crew of beginner farmers on a plot of land at Providence Farm, under the leadership of our founder Craig Evans.

In the spring of 2012, Growing Opportunities was invited to set up operations at Wyndlow Farms in Yellow Point and funding was obtained to hire a co-op development officer.


Growing Opportunities Farm Community Co-op was incorporated under the Cooperative Association Act in April 2013. We currently farm at Cline Agri-Health Centre

We are a registered non-profit. Donations are gratefully accepted via e-transfer. In addition, a legacy fund has been set up in the name of Craig Evans, through our partner Nanaimo Association for Community Living (choose fund 3, Craig Evans Growing Opportunities/NACL Inclusion Legacy Fund.)
