PROJECTS

ECOLOGICAL DESIGN/PERMACULTURE WORKSHOP SERIES

Each year, RESES organizes a series of free or low-cost workshops that showcase the ecological design skills of our community members! Anyone with a relevant skill and the passion to share it is welcome to organize a workshop.

 

To date, we have hosted workshops about natural building, growing your own mushrooms, food forestry, introductions to permaculture, and more!

COLLABORATION WITH MILPA COMUNITARIA KELOWNA

The Milpa Comunitaria Kelowna is a local project that celebrates cultural connextions to Maize and other traditional crops from Mesoamerica. It is run by and for members of the Latin American community in Kelowna.  A "Milpa is a crop-growing system used throughout Mesoamerica. It has been most extensively described in the Yucatán peninsula area of Mexico. The word milpa is derived from the Nahuatl word phrase mil-pa, which translates into "cultivated field" (Wikipedia). RESES is currently collaborating with the Milpa project to design and implement a compost toilet for use by project participants and to provide support in any other ways as requested by the project.
