Native Trees of Southern Ontario
Soggy yard? Dry yard? Learn the many benefits of sending your rainwater into the ground instead of the ditches or sewers. We will discuss the start to finish process of making a rain garden, including how to size your garden, appropriate plants and maintenance. Rain gardens are great for reducing contamination in the natural waterways, as well as recharging your groundwater.
Terrarium Building aka 'Budding Botanist'
Build a beautiful terrarium to take home that will take care of itself while you watch the plants grow! Create a miniature ecosystem using native species that can survive for decades without additional watering! Participants will learn about different ecosystems, the water cycle, a variety of species and the importance of biodiversity. We will also sculpt a small clay figure to place inside of our newly created world.
Join us as we discuss collecting and preparing wild plants common to the forests, fields, wetlands, and cities of Southern Ontario. Learn recipes to keep, and plant species to avoid.
