Spring has sprung with a flurry of garden shows and talks and I am excited to have been asked to be a guest speaker for our local garden clubs.

I will be presenting at both the Gravenhurst and Bracebridge Horticultural Society this June at the dates below.

Both presentations will be about gardening for wildlife, focusing on native plant selection and maintenance tips.  I will also be bringing a selection of some of our more uncommon native plants for sale.
