Home » OUR Blog » OUR Educational CSA – Week #8

Hello CSA members!

I know we mention this every week but that’s because it is important to us ~ Thank you for helping us reduce waste and consumption as much as possible and returning jars, containers, egg cartons and your plant pots for us to reuse! The baking containers we have been using are actually compostable at industrial facilities but we prefer to re-use them until they are no longer usable as that is the best option we have at the moment. If you happen to break or crack any of the compostable baking containers or plastic shells, you can still bring them back to us and we will ensure that they make it to the correct facility.

OUR garlic is on the brink of harvest time and we have decided to put a fresh, uncured bulb into each box this week to give you a sneak peak. Usually garlic is harvested and then dried for multiple weeks for long term storage, but you can actually still eat garlic fresh from the ground. Some things to be aware of is that it won’t keep as long since it’s fresh, it’s a little juicier than you might be used to, and you may notice a difference in the flavour profile if you have an ultra refined sense of taste!

Land acknowledgment

OUR ECOVILLAGE is situated on unceded Indigenous lands. The Coast Salish Peoples are the guardians of these lands and waters where we live, work, pray, and play. Quw’utsun (Cowichan) is a historical place of gathering and Na’tsa’ maht Shqwaluwun/”one-heart one-mind” for many Indigenous peoples.

OUR ECOVILLAGE is committed to regenerate land and all ecosystems while acknowledging and respecting Indigenous knowledge that ensures thriving for all beings; we call this Permaculture.

OUR ECOVILLAGE is dedicated to continuously educating ourselves and our communities about the history and peoples of OUR bio-region, to assist in decolonization and re-villaging as a path towards peacemaking, from local to global.
