Event description
Learn how to grow medicinal herbs so you have access to healing year round.

About this Event

Come learn how to grow medicinal plants in your garden so that you have access to healing at home all year round. You will learn about the life cycle of plants, starting seedlings, seed saving and how to create the optimal conditions for medicinals including soil, sunlight exposure, nutrients and watering. This workshop will include an introduction to a collection of medicinal plants that can be used to ease stomach upset, calm unsettled nerves, encourage sleep, support the immune system for viral infections and more. How to tend your garden, harvest, dry and process the medicinals to stock a small home apothecary and a new approach to home health care. Rebecca will have medicinal plant seed for sale if you are interested.

Instructor Bio: Rebecca Singer, RHT, is a registered Medical Herbalist, combining modern scientific understanding of herbs and health with the traditional knowledge of healing. Rebecca has been working with plants as an avid gardener, artist, and educator for the past fifteen years. She is especially interested in the co-evolutionary relationship we have with plants, sustainable practices, and the places that art and healing intersect. Having recently moved from the Atlantic to the Pacific coast she has been enjoying exploring this lush new landscape of medicinal plants. twigstonemedicine.com

There are a limited amount of Pay-What-You-Can tickets available for folks who self-identify as Black, Indigenous, and People of Colour (BIPOC). The Compost Education Centre is in the process of examining the ways in which our program accessibility can be improved for all members of our community. This ticket gesture is by no means a fulsome examination of the systems of oppression that exist for people inside and outside of our community. We welcome your ideas and feedback.

Please pre-register for this 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.

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.
