Description

Join Paul LaPorte for a detailed examination of what defines a ‘native’ plant with a focus on the evolution of plants and the impact of human influence. An emphasis will be placed on connections to the native flora of Ontario and how they came to flourish in the area.

Paul LaPorte is the owner of Ephemeral Ark Nursery (specializing in native woodland species). Living in the Greenbelt of the GTA, he has stewarded and studied numerous native plant communities within multiple ecotypes and varied microclimates. He maintains a strong knowledge of Ontario native plant species and regularly consults on ecological gardening and design. Paul is a past president of the North American Native Plant Society and is a passionate advocate on the importance of native plants.
