Event Details

Lecture description: “You don’t have to start from scratch to have a garden that invites and encourages wildlife. You don’t have to remove favourite plants because they are not native. And you don’t have to stop “grooming” your garden. Here are strategies for letting nature into an existing garden.”

Back by popular demand! Every year the Friends of the Central Experimental Farm (FCEF) partner with the Master Gardeners of Ottawa Carleton (MGOC) to offer timely and informative presentations.

The theme of the 2024 lecture series is Garden Friends and Foes.

Lectures are delivered via Zoom on Tuesday evenings from 7:00 to 8:00 p.m. and will be recorded for subsequent viewing by all who register.

This year, there are five lectures running from March 19 through to May 14, 2024.
