About this event

Join our Child & Youth Educators for a parent-child workshop for kids aged 4-10! Find out what compost is, what it’s made from, and why it’s important. Through puppets and exploratory learning participants will learn how to compost at home. This workshop is perfect for families who would like to start composting together right in their own yards, though we absolutely welcome anyone to attend! This workshop will be approximately 45 minutes to 1 hour in length.

This workshop will be happening outdoors with social distancing in place as much as possible. As some aspects of our activities may require us to come within 6 feet of each other, we ask that adults bring masks they can put on whenever social distancing can't be maintained.


Tickets are $5 per adult and $5 per child aged 4+. Please select the number of Adult tickets for the number of adults who will be attending, and the number of Child tickets for the number of children. If these ticket prices are a barrier, please select the tickets labeled "Adult: Free" and "Child: Free" - no one will be turned away for lack of funds.

Instructor bios:

As Education Coordinator at the Compost Education Centre, Elora (she/they) delivers workshops, tours and lessons to children year round. Elora has 10 years of experience working with children and has a background in environmental education. She found a love for teaching children about ecology during many years spent at summer camps and working in youth outdoor education. Elora aims to deliver interactive and accessible workshops and is excited to be able to offer parent-child workshops this summer. When she is not teaching you can find her working on her plant ID skills, doodling, swimming or taking care of her house plants.

Jeffrey (he/him) has been the Education & Site assistant at the CEC since summer of 2021. He greatly enjoys his role as a child & youth educator, and regularly bikes around the city delivering workshops to schools and daycares. He's had a passion for biological sciences since childhood, and is also a gardener. One of his favourite hobbies is taking pictures of microbes under the microscope.


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.
