PeterMiddletonThe Grey County Master Gardeners mark the end of another gardening season with their annual fall seminar on Saturday, October 27th, from 8:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., at Harmony Centre, 890 4th Avenue East, Owen Sound. This year’s seminar, “We Call It A Garden, They Call It Home”, features naturalist Peter Middleton and ecologist Jarmo Jalava.

Birds bring so much to a garden. Think what a lifeless space it would be without the colour, music, and aerial antics of these glorious creatures. In these days of shrinking wildlife habitats, birds are increasingly dependent on our gardens for food and shelter. Well known naturalist Peter Middleton talks about ways to create a space that is truly “For the Birds”, including what plant material attracts them, and what we should avoid doing if they are to be at home in our garden.

No matter how small, a garden is part of the natural ecosystem.
In his presentation “Gardening for Bountiful Biodiversity: Making a difference with native plants”, Ecologist Jarmo Jalava explores how all gardens matter, and what we can do to support and enhance their place in our environment.
The day is also about having fun with door prizes, snacks, and conversation with other gardeners. There is no charge for admission, but space is limited. If you would like to attend, call Sue Connelly (519)-924-0207 or email us at: [email protected] to reserve a spot.

Hope to see you on October 27th!
