Event Details

Do you know what’s growing in your gardens? As gardeners review the growth of plants this spring at home and at vacation properties, Cathy Kavassalis asks us to look carefully at those plants that are now listed as 'invasive' in our region and to consider replacing them. Learn why and what alternatives are available.  

This program is in partnership with gardenKitchener.
