Plants & Farm Sales

Plant list and prices
FARM ADDRESS:  3295 Compton Road, Victoria, BC 
Eco-Sense has entered a new phase to officially become a farm.  Our focus will be spread out to include many aspects of food.  This is to keep life interesting, to mirror life’s reality, to adapt to changing growing conditions (climate change), and increase resilience in unpredictable economic times.  Gord is expanding his perennial plant knowledge exponentially…his brain is well suited to this and I find it very sexy when he rattles off Latin names.

  • We will be selling specialty perennial plants here at Eco-Sense, as well as plant group packages (guilds).
  • Also available will be extra items like eggs, teas, herbs, seeds, and produce from the garden.
  • We plan on having a weekly open house  – schedule is on the top right menu of our page – (starting  Saturday April 26th of 2014). where people can come and wander through the food forest, talk to us about plants, specific cultivars, guilds, chickens, veggies, nuts, water systems, energy, food preservation, cheese making, mud, ponds, climate resilience, rant about politics, etc.  We may even talk about our Eco-Sense home or the Eco-Hut.

Below is the beginnings of the plants we will offer for sale (pick up only).  It is organized as follows – links to specific section at the top, followed by a running list of everything.  So if you are specifically searching you can go to the section of interest… and if you just want to feel empathy for us in our learning curve you can scan the list.
