Earth Club Factory Denman Island We are essentially a Guesthouse and a Cafe that transforms into any number of things:
- a performance room hosting lots of music, poetry, comedy,
- an organic food buying club
- a place where gardens grow and we harvest food when available
- a place to enjoy, soak up the culture, relax and have a cuppa coffee.
The idea of the Earth Club Factory started in the mid 90s.
With a tourism background in hosteling , a passion for sustainability and a love of coffee and music our Denman Island property became ground zero for the Earth Club Factory.
To be honest it was really quite a slow start as our 110 year old property require substantial work.
Sewage septic, roof, foundation, electrical , plumbing, a new water system… really just about everything but 20 years of chipping away at a dream payed off.
We have built a sanctuary for hostellers, musicians , artists, and our community.
Today we operate a 20 bed hostel, cafe, performance room, gallery, organic food buying club, We are passionate about growing whatever food we can so two established gardens and we have built a earthship greenhouse.
Our outdoor kitchen is a meeting area in the warmer months filled with mosaic, a beautiful cobb oven and a fire pit..
We have maintained a interesting product line of eclectic global gift-ware, a complete line of essential oils, tea and coffee products, and you can always buy solar panels and rain barrels
The arts and being creative are values we hold dear to our concept so drop by for one of our many music nights and check out the art on the wall
A few thing about the Earth Club Factory that you should know, we have built a property that embodies all the values important to us. It has been these core values that have steered this business, bio-degradable, appropriate technology, organics, travel and community. In reality a cup of fair-trade, organic coffee had a lot to do with our success
