2022 Workshops & Events


We our excited to be offering a series of 8 free workshops in 2022 through ReForest London as part of the Signal Boost Initiative, which was made possible with support from the Ontario Trillium Foundation. 

Saturday, March 5th 10:00 - 12:00

Permaculture 101


Register HERE

Held at the Westminster Ponds Centre, Bruce Pavilion, 944 Western Counties Rd, London Ontario N6C 5J1

Believe it or not, it is possible to grow food and regenerate the environment in a yard of any size, and it may be easier than you think!

Imagine stepping out of your home into lush abundant greenery. The air is fragrant with the delicate scent of blossoms. You reach up, pick a few cherries, and feel the rush of sweetness as it hits your taste-buds. It is hard to believe how much bounty you have harvested from this small space with so little labour. Instead of getting out your weeding tools as you once did, you slip into your hammock and admire the low-maintenance beauty around you.

This FREE introductory course will teach you the ethics and principles of permaculture, as well as some practical techniques that can be employed. This same workshop will be repeated on April 26th and followed up by a full day course later in May & June.

Join us to learn about this approach to food and medicine production, with a focus on perennial plants and holistic system design. 


Saturday, March 26th 10:00 - 12:00
