Event description

Description

NANPS is excited to host an evening featuring our past president, Lorraine Johnson. Lorraine will present Unsettling the Garden: How Native Plants Connect with Reconciliation and Healing the Land; a Non Indigenous Perspective.

In this presentation, Lorraine will share her thoughts on:

  • Gardening insights, and highlights of native plant projects happening now,
  • How reconciliation connects with your relationship towards the land,
  • How your native plant garden can help advance reconciliation and healing.

Lorraine Johnson has been writing about native plants and environmental issue for 30 years. Her first book, Green Future: How to Make a World of Difference, was published in 1990. Since then, she has gone on to publish seminal books about habitat gardening with native plants, including 100 Easy-to-Grow Native Plants for Canadian Gardens (recently updated in its 3rd edition), The New Ontario Naturalized Garden (1995, 2001), and Grow Wild! (1998). Her book Tending the Earth: A Gardener's Manifesto (2002) explores the connections between gardening and broad environmental and social issues. She is the editor of The Natural Treasures of Carolinian Canada (2007), a collection of essays on the unique features of Ontario's "deep south." She also writes about urban agriculture (City Farmer) and is currently co-writing a book about creating habitat for native bees.

Tickets are $10 for NANPS members, $15 for General Public and the event is free to University of Toronto students (please have student ID ready at the door).

Special thanks to the David Suzuki Foundation for their support.
