Greening the Comox Valley St. Patrick’s Dinner
This year we will celebrate the winning photographs from the 2018 Keeping It Living Competition – the photographers will receive their awards and their photographs will be displayed and up for auction. We will also unveil the new Safe Haven label on this terrific dessert wine that is being bottled right now! Ebbing, the artwork for the new label, was generously donated by Monica Gewurz.
Monica Gewurz is a mixed media contemporary artist living in Vancouver, with a science and art background she is a supporter of Nature Trust BC, the Pacific Salmon Foundation and other great environmental causes. This summer while visiting the Comox Valley, she was inspired by the Kus-kus-sum initiative and our other projects in the Island and decided to support this great project by donating some of her artwork. Prints of Ebbing (featured in the 40 Knot fortified wine) will be available for sale and Copper Ocean, another of her paintings, will be auctioned with the

Thanks to the dedicated work of our contractors, Copcan Civil Ltd., the majority of the concrete on the Kus-kus-sum site has been removed, and piled and crushed.
The family of Micah Messent would like to announce their support of the Kus-kus-sum restoration project, and Project Watershed, through the creation of the Micah Messent Legacy Fund. The fund will support the restoration of Kus-kus-sum and Project Watershed’s work to further Micah’s legacy within and beyond the Comox Valley.
Join Project Watershed for our 2021 Keeping It Living Dinner at 40 KNOTS to celebrate environmental restoration and research in the Comox Valley.
We are now over a month into removing the hard surface at Kus-kus-sum and we are on schedule to complete the process by the end of summer.
Unpaving paradise at Kus-kus-sum is underway! Over the summer the concrete and asphalt on the site are being removed. As there is a lot of rebar, and other metal embedded in the concrete, it is being removed and recycled as well. We are holding a contest to see who can guess the amount of metal that will come off the site.
Project Watershed held a community forum via Zoom to explain the restoration process that we are embarking on at Kus-kus-sum beginning June 21st, 2021. This is recording of that Zoom meeting.
