The Permaculture Group meets monthly at different member’s homes. We tour that garden, ask questions, and brainstorm suggestions. Sometimes we share plants, cuttings, or seeds. Some people have more experience and some have very little. All are welcome. Contact Moe Wendt at if you would like to join this group, or need more information

The Native Plant Group

This group is for anyone interested in learning more about the wonderful array of native plants here on Salt Spring Island. Ideally you would like to incorporate them into your garden or property, or have already, and would like to share your experience and ideas – and maybe cuttings, seeds and plants too! We would meet regularly (timing to be determined by group) and members are always welcome to host.
