Woodgrove Centre Forms Green Partnership

Woodgrove Centre Teams Up With Nanaimo Green Patrol
Keeping Nanaimo Green and Beautiful

Collecting 18 bags of garbage

Woodgrove Centre has partnered with the Nanaimo Green Patrol to help keep Nanaimo green and beautiful. Sharing a concern for environment, a team of volunteers from the centre and this local organization took part in their inaugural clean-up event in celebration of Earth Day on April 23. A total of 18 bags of garbage were collected in two and half hours. “This was our first clean-up initiative with the Nanaimo Green Patrol and it was very successful,” shared Woodgrove Centre General Manager, Mark Fenwick. “Woodgrove is committed to do what we can to contribute to a sustainable environment.”

Ron Coupal, founder of Nanaimo Green Patrol added, “I consider the environment my own backyard and wanted to do something to keep it beautiful. My hope is that by being more visible, more citizens and businesses will be encouraged to get involved.” Areas covered during the clean-up included all surrounding road ways and the grounds of May Richards Bennett Pioneer Park, Dover Bay High School, McGirr Elementary as well as along Hammond Bay near the RDN and library.


Woodgrove Centre, located on Vancouver Island in the harbour city of Nanaimo, British Columbia, is the market-dominant retail destination and focal point of the community. The centre features 723,600 square feet of retail space and is Vancouver Island's largest shopping centre attracting almost 6 million visitors per year. Woodgrove is home to over 140 stores and services.
