Celebrate 25 years of composting and conservation with music, food, and beer
›› Marika Smith
The Compost Education Centre is celebrating 25 years of composting and conservation this year! Help us celebrate many happy years of compost and soil conservation education by attending or Spring Fundraiser on Wednesday, April 12th from 6:00 to 10:00pm at the Fernwood Inn.
Give back to the earth while listening to uplifting live music, eating delicious food, chatting with friendly folks and bidding on fantastic silent auction items like yoga passes, spa packages and gift certificates from local eateries.
Proceeds from the fundraiser will directly fund our school workshops and projects such as the Healing City Soils Project, an initiative offering free soil tests to analyze Victoria’s soils and create a virtual “soil health” map of Victoria combined with free workshops on best practices for urban food production.
Fundraising allows us to continue to offer these valuable projects and to educate children and adults about the importance of soil conservation, composting and creating and sustaining local food systems. Donations and revenues raised from fundraising also help us equip our outdoor classroom with science equipment for budding biologists, children’s gardening tools and gloves, and art supplies to allow young naturalists to document their learning. Our goal is to keep our educational programming accessible for compost enthusiasts and soil stewards of all ages and community support through fundraising helps us to achieve this.
