Event description

Description

Join Toronto Botanical Garden for this hands-on workshop taught by an experienced grower and educator. Students will discover the great diversity and beauty of southern Ontario’s flora and their important role in native plant protection. They will learn how to identify, collect, store and propagate the seeds of select native herbaceous (soft-stemmed) plants, and tour the TBG’s new native seed beds and plantings. All skill levels are welcome. Come to learn and share.

Registration includes a coffee and tea break as well as helpful handouts, including lists of easy-to-grow species for home gardens and ravine restoration, and recommended readings.

Please note that paid parking is now in effect, however TBG members park for free.
