WORKSHOPS are arranged periodically throughout the year for CVHS members on a wide variety of topics. We strive to engage qualified, knowledgeable people, to lead each workshop.

Gael & Rick have increased their curb appeal with the profuse blooms of dahlias along their front yard, and are encouraging birds, bees, butterflies, and tree frogs to inhabit their gorgeous garden. Herbs, edibles, and ornamentals mingle in a colourful Comox display.

Nina & Roy’s, Comox

Nina and Roy have created a garden that is a beautiful oasis for birds, bees and butterflies. With the help of Landscape Designer Karen Cummins, they have a gorgeous and productive space encircling their home. Using sustainable and organic gardening practices they produce an enormous amount of fruit and vegetables for themselves and to share. Native plant species are used throughout their garden to offer habitat and food for local wildlife.

Workshops

In the past, we have had workshops on pond building, hyper-tufa, flower arranging, how to use lavender, grafting, pruning…including a special pruning workshop for roses…and most recently, a workshop on Actively Aerated Compost Tea. Workshops are available to the public, with Members paying a reduced fee. All workshops are currently postponed due to Covid-19.
