ReWilders Workshop #2

Join the UBC Rewilders group in learning about ways to garden with environmentally friendly plants. We have 35 demonstration species in our Riley Park Community Garden bed!

We will provide information and education about native, local, and water-wise plants. Many are beneficial for pollinators and produce edible berries.

UBC Rewilders are a cohort from the Masters of Education in Sustainability students.

Whether you have a yard or a balcony, come learn with us!

ReWilding kits available for $10 at the City of Vancouver Tree Sale 9-4pm on Sunday September 17th.
