Want to grow your own groceries but not sure where to even start?  This is a workshop designed for total beginners who want to start growing their own fresh produce.

Instructor Bio:  As the CEC’s Site Manager, Alysha Punnett practices organic gardening and permaculture in the Compost Education Centre’s gardens. Originally from the arid mountains of the Okanagan, a passion for implementing sustainable living strategies led her to the Island to complete a BSc. in Environmental Management, a Permaculture Design Certificate (Seven Ravens Permaculture Academy) and an Organic Master Gardener Certificate (Gaia College). This practical education inspired her to get her hands dirty and learn how to rehabilitate soil to grow her own food and become more self-reliant. She enjoys passing on her experience and knowledge by teaching workshops at the Centre as well as out in the community.

Compost Education Centre memberships get you free workshops, discounts at garden centres around town and more great perks!  Sign up or learn more here.
