Instructor Bio: As the Site Manager and Community Education Coordinator at the Compost Education centre, Kayla Siefried practices organic gardening and permaculture in the Compost Education Centre’s gardens and in her own urban backyard. She’s gathered knowledge from a variety of wise teachers after living and working on numerous permaculture inspired food growing farms in Canada, Australia, Ecuador, Cambodia. She’s completed various permaculture and gardening trainings, after she completed her formal education at the University of Waterloo with a Bachelor of Environmental Studies. Kayla has also spent time facilitating a wide variety of learning opportunities for learners of all ages, from preschoolers all the way up to adults. She thrives on sharing her knowledge with others, and when she’s not teaching or playing in the garden, she’s likely cooking and preserving up a storm in the kitchen, dancing, crafting, hiking or camping!
