Creating Bird Friendly Gardens - Free Workshop and Community Planting    Sat Jun 24, 2017, Toronto, ON

Learn how to plan a bird-friendly garden for your home and then help plant one for the community!

On Saturday June 24th the Humber Arboretum is hosting two events for the price of one - and the price of both is FREE.


First join the Etobicoke Master Gardeners (EMG) inside the Centre for Urban Ecology to learn how to create a garden at home that will attract and support local and migratory birds. This workshop is part of the Eco-Garden Community Workshop series hosted by the Etobicoke Master Gardeners and the Humber Arboretum throughout the year.


After the workshop we'll be holding a family-friendly community planting event on the grounds of the Humber Arboretum. Help put the final touches on the Tranquility Bird Garden that the Arboretum has been creating in partnership with Bird Studies Canada.

Come for one or both events!

WHEN: Saturday June 24, 2017. The EMG Workshop starts at 10 am, the outdoor planting event starts at 11:30 am

WHERE: The Humber Arboretum is located at the back of Humber College's North Campus (205 Humber College Blvd). Follow the road to the back; the entrance to the Arboretum is across from the green bubble building. The Centre for Urban Ecology is the glass building with the red door at the end of the path.

HOW; Both events are free but registration is required for the workshop as space is limited. You can also help us prepare for the planting event by RSVPing in advance. Please sign up for one or both by following the link below:
