How to Plant a Pollinator Patch - Workshop Series - Day 1    Sat Apr 7, 2018, Oakville, ON

Learn how to build a pollinator patch from scratch in this 2-day workshop series!

Day 1 (April 7th, 1-3pm): Join Brenda Van Ryswyk from Conservation Halton to learn about native bees and the basics of making your backyard an oasis for pollinators. Then, Cathy Kavassalis from the Oakville Horticultural Society will be teaching us about creating pollinator patches – areas specifically designed to support pollinators. Learn how to prepare a site before planting, and what to consider when choosing species.

Day 2 (April 14th, 1:30-4:30pm): Sean James, from Sean James Consulting & Design, will give us tips on pollinator patch design and layout, planting and maintenance. Donna Doyle (Town of Oakville) will share how the town is supporting pollinators. Then, we’ll visit the future site of Oakvillegreen’s new pollinator patch, where you can use what you’ve learned to help us design and choose species for our patch! Part of this workshop takes place outdoors and includes about 20 minutes of walking.

Sign up for both days for $15 or a single day for $10. We’ll be giving away FREE native plants at both workshops!

Location: River Oaks Community Centre, Community Room B, 2400 Sixth Line, Oakville
