Ecovillage, a 25 acre education and demonstration site in Shawnigan Lake that reflects a model of sustainable agriculture that supports food diversity. The village is built on permaculture principals of land use and creates a splendid interconnection between land, food and human consumption.At the 18th Annual Vancouver Island Feast of Fields on Sept 20th, 2015, guests can experience the diversity that flourishes at O.U.R.

In and amongst these unique places, the islands’ best restaurants, eateries, wineries and breweries, will tantalize the tastebuds of Feast guests with their finest local creations. It is a cornucopia of food culture that shouldn’t be missed.Tickets to Feast of Fields must be purchased in advance.
