We offer a variety of nature-inspired products, event partnerships & curriculum. Some of our favorite things to offer are workshops related to art & plant relationship development, interactive art installations, and family-friendly retreats. We primarily operate in Victoria BC, though we often travel throughout Vancouver Island & beyond to collaborate with educators, community groups & event producers.
Chantal Solomon's ancestors began to arrive in “British Columbia” in 1925 via Eastern Turtle Island, Europe & Africa. She roamed many mountains, gardens & coastlines with a curiosity for the old ways of the land which lead her to study special needs education, herbal medicine, permaculture, visual arts, and meditation. Chantal's creative drive is influenced by her work with plants and listening to the stories of the global community. Her artwork has been exhibited at the Comox Valley Art Gallery, the Richmond Museum and The Courtenay District Museum & Archives. Chantal is a creative facilitator and has worked with youth & adults in various capacities including public & private schools k-12, camps, preschools & public events. Her facilitation philosophy has been inspired by Metis culture, inquiry-based learning & Reggio Emilia.
