Toronto film screening to explore the advantages of going native

March 25, 2018 by  

Native plants offer lots of advantages in both home and commercial landscapes, and an upcoming Toronto film presentation will explore this in more depth.

The North American Native Plant Society (NANPS) and Toronto Botanical Garden (TBG) will be screening a documentary that advocates for the use of native species in the garden, and outlines some of the benefits of their use. It will also provide details of how this can provide a habitat for pollinators, birds and other animals.

According to the organizers, the goal of the film is to help build an army of habitat champions, and the film is being shown as part of the Botanical Garden’s Earth Day activities. Anyone who would like to attend is welcome, whether they are a member of the TNB of NANPS or not. A ticketing option is also available for those who would like to purchase a ticket and become a member of the TNB at the same time. A local printer can use poster printing techniques to supply promotional materials for this type of occasion.

The Hometown Habitat screening will be taking place on April 21, starting at 4:00 pm. It will be taking place at 777 Lawrence Avenue East in Toronto. Anyone who would like more details, or to buy a pass to attend, has been invited to visit the host’s website.
