Design Your Own Shoreland Garden

Your shoreline can be natural but also beautiful, while maintaining access to the lake and great lake views. Attract butterflies and pollinators. Help your lake’s fish habitats and water quality. Deter nuisance geese. Increase privacy…All while supporting our healthy ecosystems for future generations. Come to this workshop and take home a custom garden design for your shore using native plants which are tailored to your aesthetic and your needs!

Join seasoned experts with over 20 years’ experience in naturalizing, restoring, and designing shoreline gardens across Ontario. These 3 hour workshops are in a classroom at a community meeting venue near the lake or at the Land Between Charity Head Office in Haliburton. Online classes are also provided.

Bring pictures of your shoreline. Hear about why your shore is significant to the health of the lake and why your choices are important.

Learn about plants, design aspects, and lighting effects. Choose colours, heights, areas and more. Landowners can also take part in case studies here, to learn from other examples.

Co-create a custom shoreland garden design.

These workshops are $45 through online registrations or at the door. Book a venue for your lake. In person venues have a minimum participation of 15.

Dates in 2022: May 25, July 19, August 9, August 23, September 15 from 7-9
