Description

This solution-focused workshop will explore the choices available to gardeners to contribute to the global effort to reverse human-caused climate change. We will look at the carbon footprint of some common gardening practices and explore climate-friendly alternatives. We’ll examine simple ways to store carbon and water in landscapes and to adapt gardens to be more resilient to changes in the climate.

The Compost Education Centre is located on unceded and occupied Indigenous territories, specifically the land of the Lekwungen speaking people—the Esquimalt and Songhees Nations. These nations are two of many, made up of individuals who have lived within the porous boundaries of what is considered Coast Salish, Nuu-Chah-Nulth and Kwakwa’wakw Territory (Vancouver Island) since time immemorial. At the CEC we seek to respect, honour and continually grow our own understandings of Indigenous rights and history, and to fulfill our responsibilities as settlers, who live and work directly with the land and its complex, vital ecologies and our diverse, evolving communities.
