Langley Environmental Partners Society

LEPS is a unique non-profit organization formed in 1993, with a mandate to foster community cooperation through environment-oriented partnerships among government, teaching institutions, community associations and businesses. LEPS protect and restores the natural environment through education, cooperation and action, and brings together diverse groups of people with the common goal of advancing sustainability issues in Langley. LEPS' focus is engaging the public in initiatives that contribute to a healthy community. Since 1992, the Langley Demonstration Garden has been operated by LEPS in partnership with the Township of Langley as an educational facility to promote and demonstrate sustainable gardening methods. Through public engagement, the Demo Garden aims to encourage community members to adopt environmentally friendly gardening practices such as composting, all season vegetables gardening, sustainable water usage, natural pesticide and fertilizer techniques, and creating native plant gardens that support pollinators and wildlife. It is a showcase site that supports Langley’s philosophy of promoting green space for environmental practice by the public. Community events and public workshops are available in the garden from May through August. The garden is open from dawn until dusk, 7 days a week year round, but only staffed from May-August.
