Description

Long summer droughts and winter deluges make rainwater management in our region a challenging proposition. In this workshop you will learn how use rain as a resource and protect the environment by reducing pressure on our stormwater systems. The focus will be on practical design techniques that allow you to mimic the function of natural systems to solve practical water problems in your landscape. Learn about rain gardens, bioswales, rainwater harvesting and more from an experienced industry professional.

Instructor Bio:

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.

Compost Education Centre memberships get you free workshops, discounts at garden centres around town and more great perks! Sign up or learn more on our website.
