2) Gardening For Wildlife: Food, Water & Shelter, May 12th 7-8pm

Creating a backyard habitat is fun, helps native wildlife populations, and can become a beautiful natural landscape with minimal care.

3) Maintaining your “Natural” Landscape, May 19th 7-8pm

A natural garden planted to provide habitat doesn't have to become wild and unkempt and upset the neighbours!  In this workshop, we'll cover organic maintenance techniques to keep your landscape looking great for years to come.
