Comox District Exhibit at Vancouver Fair, 1928.

Cultivating and creating in the Valley of Plenty

Living off the land, past and present, is explored in this exhibition of photos, artifacts and products related to settlement and agricultural life in the Comox Valley, also known in early exhibition fairs as the “Valley of Plenty”.

Innovation, creativity and plain hard work are part of rural life in the Comox Valley and the Courtenay and District Museum brings out many items pertaining to this lifestyle. Spinning wheels, grinding stones, butter making tools, quilts, kitchen gadgets, hand-made tools, house furnishings and products being sold today will be displayed in Natural Bounty.
