Make this the year you add native plants to your garden or landscaping. They’re not only easy to grow but they add colour and beauty to any space. Take a workshop on creating a garden design that includes native plants on Thursday, April 18 from 7 to 8:30 p.m. It’s part of Richmond Hill’s Healthy Yards Program and offered in partnership with the Toronto & Region Conservation Authority. You’ll also receive a free copy of “Greening Your Grounds Homeowner’s Guide. It takes place at Bayview Hill Community Centre, 114 Spadina Road, just a short drive from Avenue Towns.
