Location

About the garden

  • This public pollinator demonstration garden was created in partnership with Pollination Guelph, and with funding from TD Friends of the Environment, Guelph Community Foundation and the RBC Blue Water Project.
  • Pollination Guelph, with the support of the City of Guelph’s Healthy Landscape program, replaced the existing turf that was struggling to survive with a habitat garden aimed at attracting pollinating insects and birds.
  • The professionally designed garden features native and drought-tolerant plants suitable for both residential gardens and commercial sites.
  • City staff, Pollination Guelph and volunteers maintain the garden.

Get involved

This garden was designed to provide an example of a beautiful low maintenance landscape that also provides habitat for wildlife and to inspire residents to create similar habitat gardens at home. Come check it out and get inspired!
