The Therapeutic Farm Program provided by the Vancouver Island Providence Community  Association (VIPCA) has served the Cowichan Valley community since 1979. This program takes place on picturesque Providence Farm – a working farm and regional landmark gifted to VIPCA by the Sisters of Saint Ann. Often referred to as a de facto “rural community centre” the impact of this vital program extends beyond program participants and volunteers to benefit the region (and beyond) as a hub of community action and inclusivity. 

We provide a variety of innovative programs for individuals with mental health, brain injury, dementia and developmental challenges. Programs include horticultural therapy, art, woodworking, nutrition, gardening and landscaping, and textiles, just to name a few.  We believe that caring for the land together is healing and therapeutic. We are a place for those who have difficulty in the mainstream to grow and be a part of a community.

Visitors are encouraged to visit the Farm.  

Our General Store is open Wednesday through Sunday, 10:00-5:00, and visitors can pick up a free map at the Store and enjoy a self-guided tour. For a $5 donation you can stay for lunch Monday through Friday at 12:30 (only one sitting) in our dining room. Large groups should book ahead.

Come and pet Molly our donkey, have a coffee, wander the gardens and trails. Here you can take a deep breath and step out of the stressful world for a while and you’ll find the air is healthy; the work, worthy; the place, full of smiles.

Thank You to Duncan Daybreak Rotary for the donation of a container for storage at the Farm. This container provides a safe place to keep many of our rental facility items including our tents. It is a welcome gift and will help streamline our wedding rentals and make our participants' jobs a little easier. Thank you for believing in our work.

Chris Holt Providence Farm Executive Director and Keith Grey former Rotary Daybreak President.
