Brampton workshop will explore ways to welcome pollinators to the garden

July 1, 2018 by  

Inviting pollinators into the home landscape can add interest to the garden while helping the local ecosystem to thrive, and a workshop planned for Brampton will investigate easy ways of doing so.

The session, which has been titled ‘Gardening for Birds, Butterflies and Beyond’ will be hosted by the Peel Art Gallery, Museum and Archives. It will run for one hour, and will provide lots of details about how to make a garden a haven for native insects, birds and other wildlife.

The session will explore how adding certain features to a landscape can make wild creatures feel welcome, while at the same time enhancing its overall beauty for the humans who also utilize the space. There will be time to ask questions and receive advice, and the event is being offered to members of the local community free of charge.

Scheduled to begin at 7:00 pm, the workshop is open to anyone who would like to increase their gardening knowledge. Each guest will go home with a copy of the ‘Creating Habitat Guide’, and local stationery printers can provide copies of bound learning materials such as this.

Thursday, August 9 has been chosen as the date for this learning opportunity that will focus on pollinator-friendly gardening. More information and a chance to RSVP for the event can be found on the community website.
