26 Acres of Protected Land
The Gabriola Commons is a unique property set aside in perpetuity for the benefit of both the people of Gabriola and the land itself.
Specifically zoned as a community commons, it is truly a place where “land and people meet” – to grow and prepare food, to make connections through talking, walking or performing, to observe species in a protected ecology, or to work on a project or the land.
Come for a unique experience and a contribution to a promising future.
