Event description
Learn techniques for building healthy resilient gardens that withstand drought and pest stresses in our changing and challenging climate.

About this Event

What is regenerative agriculture? Regenerative agriculture is a conservation and rehabilitation approach to food and farming systems. It focuses on topsoil regeneration, increasing biodiversity, improving the water cycle, enhancing ecosystem services, supporting biosequestration, increasing resilience to climate change, and strengthening the health and vitality of the soil.

Come and explore how we can implement regenerative practices in our home gardens. Learn techniques for building healthy resilient gardens that can withstand drought and pest stresses through innovative practices such as no-dig gardening, perennial food crops, mulches and cover-cropping, deep-litter small flock systems, wood chip gardening and more. Now more than ever our gardens can provide us with the inspiration and small scale practice required for a changing, more challenging climate.

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.

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.
