Father Charles Brandt (1927 – 2020) was a well-known spiritual and environmental leader in the Comox Valley. In 2019, he chose to protect his 11-hectare property along the banks of the Oyster River with a conservation covenant held by the CVLT. With his passing, the land will soon become a park managed by the Comox Valley Regional District. The park will be open to the public in due time. There are no trails on the property.
The property includes Father Charles’ hermitage cabin that will be jointly managed by a non-profit society comprised of members of his Hermitage Advisory Committee and the CVRD. The hermitage will provide a home to a “contemplative individual.”
Father Charles’ beloved home will offer others a place of solitude and inspiration for years to come.
