Connect to Community

Intercultural Garden

Everyone is welcome to join our weekly gatherings to plant and tend the garden.

If food is the great welcome to new lands, let this garden be a beacon of fresh sharing! Learn together about gardening, local nature, and cooking.

Email or stop by the Squamish Welcome Centre to learn more.



Share a meal with your community, meet new friends, and have fun!

Squamish Newcomer Services’ Potlucks are an opportunity to share, connect, and appreciate diversity and multiculturalism.

Interested in joining for our next event? Email to get on the potluck mailing list!


Cultural Cooking

More than a program to learn how to prepare new dishes, this program is a way to connect with people in the community and bring people together to share stories through the medium of food.

Do you want to taste good foods or share one of your traditional meals? Join us!

Email to join in the next event as a participant or host.
