Event description

Description

Join Ashley Cooper in exploring the native plants that dwell here at the Compost Education Centre and learn about their traditional uses. We will also consider the larger bioregion that underlies the cityscape and discuss how we can grow beyond a colonial system of food production into one that also respects traditional foods, native ecosystems, and the indigenous cultures of this land.

Instructor Bio:

Ashley Cooper (Tsartlip First Nation) is a SENĆOŦEN language specialist and education coordinator for the PEPÁḴEṈ HAUTW̱ Program; she is currently working hard to revitalize important cultural knowledge and practices in her community and beyond.

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.
