Gardening Webinar – “Ready, Set, Grow”
Learn how your garden can mitigate climate change, boost biodiversity and provide food. Plus tips on spring clean-up, weeds and pollinators. Please register to join us on May 19. Registration is available here for the May 5 and 12 webinars.
What can we do to help mitigate climate change, increase biodiversity and provide food for ourselves, our family and our neighbours? In this webinar, we’ll talk about how to build ecological landscapes by caring for the soil and honouring its stories. You’ll learn about spring clean-up tips; simple techniques to divert, catch and hold water; the benefits of weeds; and planting to welcome pollinators and other species.

She is an award-winning Ecological Landscape Designer who works to mitigate climate change, increase biodiversity and address food sovereignty. She specializes in underutilized public and private green spaces, inclusive community engagement, land acknowledgements, reconciliation, restoration and more.
