Cowichan Green Community (CGC) and the Valley Cider Company are excited to announce the launch of their new collaboration, Community In-Cider alcoholic cider. To celebrate the release, CGC and the Valley Cider Company will be hosting a launch party at Small Block Brewery at #203-5301 Chaster Road on June 15th, 2019 from 2 – 8pm. There will be live music (including Masimba Marimba), food trucks, door prizes, delicious cider and even a dunk tank!

Community In-Cider is a true community partnership that stemmed from the efforts of CGC’s FruitSave program and the owner/operators of the Valley Cider Company, the Cowichan Valley’s newest producer of quality cider. FruitSave relies on a community of volunteers to help ensure that fruit grown in Cowichan doesn’t end up rotting on the ground. In 2018, FruitSave volunteers gathered nearly 11,000 lbs. of potentially wasted local, fresh fruit from 47 different properties. A portion of this bounty was pressed into 1,000 litres of raw apple juice that formed the basis for the cider-fermentation process.

Bruce McKinlay, owner of the Valley Cider Company, describes the soon-to-be-released Community In-Cider,

“It’s so unique that it is unreplicable. With notes of green apple, sweet grass, and even papaya; it tastes like summer. All thanks to the wide variety of apples that came from around our valley.”

CGC’s Annual General Meeting will also be taking place on-site from 4 - 5pm. We will be celebrating our annual community Green Super Hero Awards and the annual Board of the Year award. If you’re interested in becoming a board member please contact Nadeane Nelson at [email protected] for more information.
