About this Event

Learn about the wide variety of perennial vegetables you can grow in the Pacific Northwest. Many people know about asparagus and artichokes, but did you know that there are many different perennial vegetables that do well is our climate? These plants are nutrient dense, long lived, and resilient to a changing climate, and are also delicious! We'll explore how to propagate perennial veg and incorporate them in your edible landscape, as well as your diet.

Instructor Bio: Solara Goldwynn and her husband Tayler Krawczyk own and manage Hatchet & Seed, an edible landscaping & ecological design company based in Victoria, BC. Since 2011, they've been transforming underutilized spaces into thriving edible ecosystems (in urban and rural landscapes). They also practice regenerative agriculture in their own backyard in Vic West, with integrated chicken coop + compost systems, light greywater re-use, edible plant nursery, rain gardens, greenhouses, fruit trees, and no-dig veggie gardens; all on 1/10th of an acre rented city lot.

Only current members in good standing are eligible to use the free ticket option as a part of their member benefits package.

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.

Customers can request a refund within 30 days of ticket purchase. After 30 days refunds and workshop exchanges are not permitted due to administrative staffing capacity.

You can also register for the event by calling our office at 250 386 9676 or via email by contacting office@compost.bc.ca

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.
