In this workshop, you will learn how gardening with our local native plants can give you a water-saving, low-maintenance garden that brings colour all season long, making them the ultimate ecological choice. Native plants are adapted to the area's conditions making them ideal for organic gardening- no supplemental fertilizers or pesticides are needed. Whether your garden conditions are wet, salty or xeric (dry, dry, dry) there are native plants that will thrive and support great pollinators and our local ecology too! With year-round interest in mind, we will explore how to keep the garden beautiful from spring to winter and tap into valuable local and online resources to help you along the way!
