Composting Workshops

With Alysha Punnett from Victoria's Compost Education Centre.

Soil: Really Important Tiny Lives explores the importance of a thriving soil ecosystem in the context of our gardens as well as from the broader global perspective. Everything that microorganisms in the soil do for us will be revealed as well as how to steward the soil so they survive. While this workshop is primarily theory-based, it is essential knowledge for anyone who is interested in growing food, mitigating climate change and working to conserve this key resource.


Really Important Tiny Lives

This year, the Food Program is paying a bit of extra attention to bacteria, and the important roles they play in our food systems, from the garden to the table. This month, we’re excited to be welcoming Alysha Punnett, Site Manager & Community Education Coordinator at Victoria’s Compost Education Centre. The Centre offers workshops for adults and children, and also is the site of teaching garden that is definitely worth a visit. They also sell some great composting supplies.


New: Permaculture Working Group

Building resilience, building relationships. The Permaculture Working Group is a new opportunity to explore Permaculture and related ecological design methodologies while more importantly creating new friendships, sharing knowledge and getting some experience putting the topics we explore to work on the land. Tricia Sharpe and Christopher Heffley will share the Permablitz model as a way of sharing skill sets and workload, as well as finding out what challenges people are most interested in exploring on their own sites.

Dogwood for Margaret

The Heritage Forest, located at the end of Georgia View Road, is 126 ha of land managed jointly by the Galiano Club & the Galiano Conservancy. One of those instrumental in having the Forest created in 2000 was, then serving as an Island Trustee, Margaret Griffiths. After Margaret's death earlier this year a group of friends, with the Club's approval, planted a Pacific Dogwood tree in her memory, most appropriately, in a lovely & quiet corner of the Heritage Forest.
