The University of Victoria’s Campus Community Garden is a collaborative project between students, faculty and staff that promotes local, organic food production, education and community building.  Stephanie Enevoldsen is the current Coordinator of UVic’s Campus Community Garden, she tells us about its history, how it’s growing and evolving, and also how people can get involved there.

Rithet’s Bog Conservation Society (RBCS) is a registered non profit Society dedicated to the care and stewardship of Rithet’s Bog Conservation Area, which contains the last remaining peat bog on the Saanich Peninsula.  It’s home to 120 bird species, as well as a diverse range of other inhabitants. Russ Pym is a retired biologist and President of Rithet’s Bog Conservation Society.  He explains why this wetland ecosystem is so important to our local wild habitat, and how people can get involved to help protect it.
