About this event

Join our Education Coordinator Elora for some story time under the willow tree at the CEC. We will share some of our favourite nature and gardening-related kids books, and perhaps bring out some puppets as well! Books will vary in length / reading level. Folks are welcome to bring children younger than 3 too!

Tickets are free or by donation.

Please try to arrive on time, as if registration is full, attendees who don't show up may have their spot given to those who drop in. Participants do not need to stay for the entire event.

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.
