Grow Local

West Coast 

Workshops & Events

Every year, we host a series of gardening workshops that provide our west coast community with the skills and knowledge needed to tackle the challenges of growing in our temperate rainforest environment.
Instructed by local and Vancouver Island based expert gardeners, our Grow Local Workshops cover everything from making a wildlife proof compost bin, to keeping pests and insects out of your garden beds, and how to winterize your garden.

We are not currently hosting any in-person workshops due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Visit our YouTube channel for how-to garden videos, tours of local gardens and recordings of past workshop presentations.

Edible Garden Tours

Our annual Edible Garden Tours are designed to showcase the incredible potential for local food growing on the west coast and inspire individuals to start or improve their own backyard gardeners.

In partnership with the Ucluelet Local Food Society, two days of tours are hosted each year, one in Tofino and one in Ucluelet. 

Join us this summer for a special invitation to visit the best home gardeners on the west coast!
