Create a Healing Garden

  • Revelstoke Community Centre (Macpherson Room) 600 Campbell Ave Revelstoke, BC, V0E 2S0 Canada (map)

What would it take to create a garden that promotes health, healing and well-being and draws people outdoors to interact with nature?

This would be a garden that promotes biodiversity and ecosystem integrity and links these with what we all seek in life – peace, purpose and the feeling of wholeness.

By using all of your senses, learn how to appreciate and connect more deeply with the natural world in a way that will positively impact everything from relationships and health to how you garden. 

This workshop will be of interest to anyone seeking healing and well-being through nature. It may be of special interest to those working in health-related professions or landscaping as they seek new ways to assist their clients.


Presented by Evan Rafuse BSc., Env. Tech. and Permaculturist. 

Evan blends the worlds of ecology, art, agriculture, and a love for all animals and plants. He is passionate about weaving his education, interests and experiences to help re-connect people to the natural world. He encourages building meaningful relationships with nature and creating healthy diversity. He also enjoys relating the human body to soil, inspiring our drive to build and maintain food and water security and linking our quest for inner healing to our true relationship to living systems. He challenges and inspires others to think past self, color outside of the lines, jump a little outside of their comfort zone to follow the white rabbit. Evan currently lives in the Coldstream, Lavington area where he enjoys building regionally appropriate ecosystem landscapes - “Wildscaping” - that benefit both nature and humans. Most particularly, Evan strives to create unique gardens for both wild pollinators and food production.
