Learn How to Garden for Free in Mississauga
Get eco-friendly by embracing gardening season in Mississauga and Brampton — Credit Valley Conservation (CVC) is inviting homeowners to its gardening workshops in May as part of the Your Green Yard program.
"The gardening workshops are a great way for homeowners to learn about ecological landscaping," said CVC deputy CAO and director of watershed transformation Mike Puddister.
"We provide the information they need to create beautiful and sustainable landscapes."
The workshops are free. Attendees can learn how to add colour, beauty and diversity to yards with locally native plants and other techniques, and explore how to attract birds and butterflies, find the perfect shade tree, and increase curb appeal.
Three free workshops are taking place in Mississauga, with one event in Brampton.
Learn how to garden with locally native trees, wildflowers and flowering shrubs that are right for your yard. Guests can sign up to receive a free tree or shrub.
