The Fernwood Community Association (FCA) plays an active role in Fernwood land use and development issues. We act as a liaison between the Fernwood community and the City of Victoria.

The Fernwood Community Association operates from a heritage building at 1923 Fernwood Road. We occupy a small front office on the main floor and the rest of the building including the Main Hall ("Little Fernwood") and a boardroom are available for rental and community activities. Groups using this hall include Theatre Inconnu, Pandora Arts Collective, Good Food Box program, and Cafe Sympatico, along with several recovery support groups and one-off community rentals for events, art shows, independent theatre groups, meetings and celebrations.

The FCA operates two Community Allotment Gardens in Fernwood, one called Fernwood Community Garden which we share on Chambers St. with the Victoria Compost Education Centre, once a project of the FCA and now a successful independent organization in its own right. Garden St. is the location of the other Community Allotment Garden.

At the corner of Chambers & Gladstone is Spring Ridge Common, a "Heritage Vacant Lot," on the site of the old Spring Ridge School from 1888 to 1968. Spring Ridge Common was initiated by the FCA in 1999 and has since been handed off to Fernwood Neighbourhood Resource Group, who committed to maintain it as an accessible, permaculture green space for the community.
