A retreat is a withdrawal from ordinary activities for a period of time to commune and reflect. Whichever faith you bring to this retreat, you can sit and walk beside each other with the shared intention to improve your community.

The Lush Valley Food Action Society is hosting a silent interfaith retreat on March 27th, between 1:00 p.m. and 4:00 p.m. Join us in your choice of silence: meditation, prayer, sacred walk, or observance.

You can make your retreat for an hour or the entire afternoon. Your suggested donation of $20 will help support the valuable programs and services offered by the LUSH Valley Food Action Society.

LUSH Valley, which has been operating in our community since 2000, is a charitable, non-profit grassroots volunteer society that supports food related projects to empower people of the Comox Valley towards wellness and environmental stewardship.  LUSH Valley’s programs promote local food sustainability; provide education about how to grow, harvest and cook food; and facilitate the generosity of those who wish to share their harvest.
