Herb Gardening with Alex Augustyniak

April 9, 2021 @ 2:00 pm 3:00 pm PDT

Have you ever wanted to try growing your own herbs at home? Herbs are very easy to grow with a little sunshine, well-draining soil, watering, and fertilizer or compost. Join the general manager of West Coast Seeds, Alex Augustyniak, as he takes us through the multifunctional nature of herbs, how to grow them and how to look after them. He will also suggest some familiar and perhaps unfamiliar herbs to try.

Born in Ontario and raised on a farm led by his amazing grandmother, Mary Gajewski, his family farm was established in 1938 and at its peak, the farm was just over 400 acres with various crops, cows, chickens and rabbits.

After he moved to BC in the 90s, Alex and his wife own a soon to be certified organic farm in Mission that aims to be as biodiverse as possible. 

In 2014, Alex took on the role of GM of West Coast Seeds Ltd, a BC family-owned seed company, leading the efforts to help people grow their own food year round.

Alex is also the Treasurer, and an Ornamentals judge of All American Selections, an independent seed trial group, established for over 90 years ago with over 95 trial judges and sites across North America.
