Rubble Planter Workshop hosted by Renée & Ben: Come build your own planter made from salvaged materials and native plants. We’ll be using broken tile, brick and crushed concrete to make super hardy outdoor planters for your balcony or deck. Resilient and tough-as-nails native plant selection curated by Toronto Plant Market and Native Plant Supply. Support pollinators! Come turn Toronto’s construction rubble into something beautiful!

Workshop includes all required materials. Bring a tote bag to carry home your planter. By donation, minimum $30. Space for the workshop is limited! Reserve your spot today by clicking on the orange button.

Connect on Climate: It’s time to party! Join other designers and allies to raise a glass and celebrate what keeps us going in our work; how land-use and social justice intertwine; stepping up and speaking truth to power; and sharing what landscapes and plants you love…. with food for sale by Maizal Tortilleria and a cash bar.

How to get to Toronto Plant Market and Native Plant Supply | 327 Bering Ave: 10 min walk from Kipling TTC, take the South Exit. This event is accessible. Parking is very limited.

DESIGN CLIMATE ACTION is a group of allied designers who acknowledge that as shapers of the built environment we have played a role in creating the global climate crisis. We commit to educate, advocate and design for a socially just transition to a carbon neutral economy. Change is needed urgently. Collective action must be sustained. Now is our moment to develop new modes of practice rooted in land-based climate solutions.
