Garden Tours
Time: 
1-3
Address: 

Compost Education Centre 1216 North Park Street

Explore 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:
