Come and 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 under-utilised 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 grey-water 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.

About the Organizer:

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.
