About this Event

This workshop will present easy to implement, affordable techniques for urban backyard water resilience. Topics covered will include soil building, shade creation, rainwater harvesting and greywater capture and usage.

Instructor Bio:

Tayler Krawczyk, with his wife Solara, co-manages Hatchet & Seed, an edible landscaping & ecological design company based in Victoria, BC. Since 2011, they've been transforming barren, boring yards into thriving edible ecosystems. They also practice permaculture principles 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 veggie gardens; all on 1/10th of an acre lot. Retro-suburbia and regenerative agriculture now!

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.
