Rebuilding Nature’s Relationships at Home
Tuesday, October 25, 7:30 p.m.
Douglas Tallamy
Specialized relationships between wild animals and plants are the norm, not the exception. These relationships provide birds with insects and berries, disperse bloodroot seeds, pollinate goldenrod and so on. Plants that evolved in concert with local animals provide for their needs better than plants that evolved elsewhere. Doug will explain why this is so and how we can create beautiful gardens that support native biodiversity.


* Introduction by Lorraine Johnson, renowned environmental and garden writer and advocate, to begin at 7 p.m.

Presented by The Donner Canadian Foundation in partnership with Carolinian Canada Coalition, Ontario Invasive Plant Council and WWF Canada.

Public $15, Free to TBG members (Registration is required). Please register online.

What to do with a Downpour – Ornamental Ways to Handle Rain Water
Monday, November 21, 7:30 p.m.
Sean James
Our cities are largely covered by impermeable surfaces – roofs, parking lots, roads, even compacted soil – which contribute to water pollution, flooding and bank erosion in urban ravines. Sean will demonstrate how gardeners can help turn the tide on this troubling situation with beautiful water-protecting landscapes.

Bistro opens 5:30 p.m. Doors open 6:30 p.m. Lecture: 7:30 p.m.
Members FREE (Bring a Friend for $10)
Public $15; Students (with ID) $12.
Door sales only.

This lecture is generously supported by the Royal Bank of Canada.

Arrive early to grab a light dinner, shop at the Organic Farmers’ Market or visit the Garden Shop for great seasonal home and gardening items (be sure to show your membership card for discounts!)

    I have a note that there is a workshop on Oct 18/16, called “Creating a Roof Garden” with James & Mary McLean, hosted by the Milne House Garden Club. I know this workshop was offered April 21/15, but I have a note from somewhere that it is being offered again on Oct 18/16. I can’t find MIlnehousegardenclub.org.
    Anybody know anything please?
