The Cumberland Home, Garden, and Culture Crawl is a full day immersive exploration of design, heritage, storytelling, food security, art, permaculture, intergenerational living, 3rd spaces and a sneak peak into the wonderful and quirky places that reflect the resilience of the Village of Cumberland.

On Saturday June 25th from 9 am till 5 pm locals and visitors alike are invited to spend the day learning more about the “off main street” culture of the Village. Art exhibits, live music, upcycled goods, flowers and farm stands, food gardens, cool renovations, sweet little studios, technological innovations, readings, garden parties and more await ticket holders.

Launched in 2015 as the Cumberland Home and Garden Tour, the event had five successful years before the pandemic brought it to a standstill. That makes 2022 the sixth (almost) annual event. This year organizers are bringing the culture crawl element to the forefront, inviting Cumberland’s creativity to take centre stage.

The Cumberland Home, Garden, and Culture Crawl is a placemaking project created to amplify community and connection. As our community grows and changes, we need to nurture our inter-dependence and our diversity. Our stories, experiences, ideas, projects, and gathering spaces hold the key to our evolution as a Village and as a Comox Valley.

Presented by the Cumberland Community Forest Society (CCFS), The Cumberland Home, Garden and Culture Crawl is generously sponsored by First Credit Union, Standing Bear Construction, Facet Custom Builders, Cumberland Museum and Archives, Catherine Worthy Real Estate and John Gower Design.

Tickets are $25 and available online at cumberlandforest.tickit.ca/events/. Volunteers are also welcome as venue hosts. Volunteer half the day and join the crawl for the other half! Message heather@cumberlandforest.com to sign up.

100% of funds raised support ongoing land protection and stewardship work in the Cumberland Forest and Perseverance and Trent Watersheds. To date the CCFS has purchased and protected over 500 acres of forest with another 44 acres scheduled to be purchased this summer. Support for this event helps to protect the bats, toads, salmon, and diverse ecosystems of the Cumberland Forest!
