Truly bigger than the sum of its parts, soil is a partnership with mutual benefits. Learn about the soil partners and the roles they play, and find out how easy it is to create and support a healthy soil ecosystem. The reward? Healthy plants with high nutritional value and a natural resilience against pests and disease.

The Compost Education Centre is located on unceded and occupied Indigenous territories, specifically the land of the Lekwungen speaking people—the Esquimalt and Songhees Nations. These nations are two of many, made up of individuals who have lived within the porous boundaries of what is considered Coast Salish, Nuu-Chah-Nulth and Kwakwa'wakw Territory (Vancouver Island) since time immemorial. At the CEC we seek to respect, honour and continually grow our own understandings of Indigenous rights and history, and to fulfill our responsibilities as settlers, who live and work directly with the land and its complex, vital ecologies and our diverse, evolving communities.
