Instructor Bio:

As Site Manager, Alysha Punnett practices organic gardening and permaculture in the Compost Education Centre’s gardens. Originally from the arid mountains of the Okanagan, a passion for implementing sustainable living strategies led her to the Island to complete a BSc. in Environmental Management, a Permaculture Design Certificate (Seven Ravens Permaculture Academy) and an Organic Master Gardener Certificate (Gaia College). This practical education inspired her to get her hands dirty and learn how to rehabilitate soil to grow her own food and become more self-reliant. She enjoys passing on her experience and knowledge by teaching workshops at the Centre as well as out in the community.
