The summer winding down but its never to early to think about next year’s garden.

The Riverwood Conservancy is hosting a three-session, gardening 101 course this fall.

The course will explore topics of garden design, maintenance, pollinators, pests, and more. Riverwood’s diverse gardens are the backdrop for the course with classes being held at Chappell House and in the garden beds. There will be hands-on learning opportunities.

The instructor, Taya Kehler, has a degree in landscape architecture from Dalhousie University. She has an interest in eco-friendly practices and pollinators.

The Riverwood Conservancy is a volunteer- and member-based charity that protects, restores, and invites people to connect with nature at Riverwood – an oasis of woodlands, meadows, and ravines that spans 150 acres along the Credit River in Mississauga.

The Year of the Garden: Gardening 101 Course will be on Monday evenings, 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m., Sept. 12, 19 and 26. It’s $100 for non-members and $80 for members.
