Native Plants Workshop: Wed May 30th, 6-8 pm

British Columbia is home to over 3,000 species of native plants, including ferns, wildflowers, shrubs and trees. These plants are adapted to local soil and weather conditions, require less water, are hardier, more disease resistant and support native species of insects, animals and birds creating a rich biodiversity that is important for people and planet.

In this interactive workshop, you’ll discover how to incorporate native plants into your garden and to  get the scoop on invasive species that are threatening our local ecosystems and whether they are ‘friend or foe’. We’ll also be looking at how First Nations traditionally used these plants and embarking on a native plants ‘treasure hunt’ around the Compost Ed Garden.

Suggested donation:  $5

Location:  The straw bale building at the Compost Education Centre, 1216 North Park St, Victoria, BC
