We are very proud to announce our pollinator meadow has officially been certified by the Canadian Wildlife Federation as a Wildlife-Friendly Habitat!
In order to become certified, you must provide food, water, and shelter for wildlife, practice eco-friendly maintenance (no pesticides or herbicides) and have a number of native plants planted. We certified our property to help create awareness of the potential for any garden, large or small, to be a significant contributor to the wildlife community and also to get our dot on the map! Our meadow is but a small stepping stone in the larger landscape matrix, helping local and migratory wildlife pass through and live in our cities, including species at risk like bees and butterflies.
