What is the I Love Cowichan Blog About?

A Community blog celebrating the Cowichan Valley’s beauty & bounty

Welcome and thanks for visiting the I Love Cowichan blog! Mighty neighbourly of you 😊 Come right in. I hope you’ll stay awhile and have some fun poking around.

If you haven’t already — don’t forget to follow the I Love Cowichan blog, and our Instagram & Facebook accounts.
