Around Town - Front Yards of Toronto

February 25th 2019. 19:00 to 21:00

Toronto and Parkdale Horticultural Society meeting
Monday, February 25
Doors open at 7pm.
Meeting starts at 7:30pm.
Bonar-Parkdale Presbyterian Church, 250 Dunn Avenue, just south of Queen Street West.

Join us as guest speaker Maria Nunes takes us around town! Toronto’s traditional Kentucky bluegrass lawns edged with cookie-cutter foundation beds and the odd city-planted tree of yesteryear have given way to a myriad of interpretations of the all-important front yard. From stalwart traditionalists to food growers, ‘naturalized’ to meticulously curated plantings, Toronto’s cosmopolitan status is reflected in its home gardens.

Let this unusual talk inspire your own gardening... or simply sit back and enjoy the simplicity (or complexity!) of what some of these front yards have to offer.

Come early to enjoy tea, coffee, and cookies while you chat, ask questions, and bid in our silent auction!
