Urban gardens present a unique opportunity to address the dual crisis of biodiversity loss and climate change while also connecting people to each other and to nature. It is even possible to do this in a small space like a balcony, porch, patio, walkway or doorstep if we choose the right plants and learn to garden like an ecologist.
This talk will focus on practical strategies and tools to avoid common hurdles on the way to building your own small-yet-mighty biodiverse microcosm.
Speaker: Ryan Godfrey, Nature Connected Communities, World Wildlife Fund Canada , Project Swallowtail, and In the Zone Gardens. Brian’s personal website, Botanically Speaking has podcasts and blogs relating to growing native plants.
