Fernwood NRG is a neighbourhood house run by and for the residents of Fernwood, a neighbourhood in Victoria, BC.
Since 1979, our non-profit charitable organization has provided child care, family, seniors, and community programs, recreation activities, and food security initiatives like the Good Food Box at the Fernwood Community Centre. We host Fernwood’s annual neighbourhood celebration – FernFest, and support placemaking and community development initiatives in Fernwood. We organize the Gift of Good Food fundraiser annually which supports families in need across Greater Victoria with fresh fruit and vegetables. We publish the Village Vibe, Fernwood’s neighbourhood newspaper and share the voices of our community. We operate ten, three-bedroom units of affordable housing for families in the Cornerstone Apartments and Park Place Apartments.
We could not have achieved what we have without our funders, supporters, and friends. Please consider making a donation, and you can help us to continue to create the neighbourhood we all wish we had grown up in.
We acknowledge and respect the Lək̓ʷəŋən peoples on whose traditional territory where Fernwood NRG stands and the Songhees, Esquimalt, and W̱SÁNEĆ peoples whose historical relationships with the land continue to this day.
