Welcome to our community of leaders growing a green future in partnership with native plants.
Native plants are the building blocks of healthy ecosystems.
This survey is being conducted by Carolinian Canada to support the development of a seed strategy and explore the potential for growth of a green and just economy for healthy landscapes in southern Ontario in the spirit and practice of reconciliation.
We live on the traditional territories of many nations including the Anishinaabe, the Haudenosaunee, the Lunaapeew, the Wendat and the Mississauga; and the rights and treaties of the many, diverse Indigenous people who live here now. We commit to the teachings the Two Row Wampum and the One Dish One Spoon Wampum; and our duty to reconcile, learn more and create safe spaces for Indigenous and non-Indigenous perspectives to meet and discuss the issues that matter to everyone.
Your voice is critical if you work with native plants, now or in the future. You may be, for example, a First Nations community, municipality, nursery, landscape architect, conservation organization, sustainability or supply chain manager, large landowner, volunteer group, horticulture or landscaping business.
