In the Zone Community Leaders Workshops

In the Zone empowers individuals to take actions supported by the best science to address the current climate emergency.  By working with local environmental ENGOs, community groups, suppliers and residents we can connect urban and rural landscapes and communities in Southern Ontario, simply by reintroducing locally sourced native plants.  Join us to collaborate with community leaders to seed, save and steward healthy landscapes for wildlife, water and ways of life in southern Ontario.

Who should attend: Representatives from garden centers, community group leaders, citizens, gardeners, students and volunteers are interested in restoring healthy landscapes with nature-based solutions.
