School Ground Greening Workshop | Planting and Maintaining Your Trees & Food Gardens

Take our workshop in Ottawa to learn how to nurture your school ground after it has been revitalized.

Blessed Trinity School gardens in Toronto ON.

Greening teams typically devote a considerable amount of time to planning, fundraising and planting, but all too often neglect to plan for the essential follow-up care and maintenance.

Join our workshop to find out how to plant, protect and care for your trees and food gardens. Learn about how quickly trees and gardens can decline when they are not properly protected while developing, and what you can do to ensure their protection remains a priority for your school. Also, learn about how to improve the health of existing trees on your grounds and how to restore a neglected greening project.
