Shifting the Paradigm forum

How do we work together to build a thriving native plant industry?


Wednesday, March 7, 2018
St. James Cathedral Centre, 65 Church St., Toronto


There’s a quiet revolution underway. In the Zone and other successful gardening programs for native plants and pollinators demonstrate the growing awareness that what we plant makes a difference. Businesses, institutions, municipalities and homeowners across Ontario are creating attractive, green, climate-resilient, natural infrastructure with native plants.

This growing desire to take action represents a shift in the market for the billion-dollar horticulture industry in Ontario. Professional planters and lay enthusiasts are saying that demand for native plants exceeds supply. First Nations and entrepreneurial ecologists are already leading the way. Is it time for the industry to ramp up production and distribution?

Join us at the Shifting the Paradigm forum as we map the native plant supply chain with leaders from the horticultural and landscaping sectors, governments, First Nations, social finance, retail distributors, NGOs and garden clubs.

Add the forum to your calendar!

Registration Opens Soon! For more information visit:
caroliniancanada.ca/forum2018

Together we will explore opportunities to empower individuals, businesses and communities to grow healthy, beautiful green infrastructure naturally fit for the southern Ontario landscape.

Presented by Carolinian Canada and WWF-Canada
with support from the Ontario Trillium Foundation and other partners

 About the Ingersoll District Nature Club

Since 1952, the Ingersoll District Nature Club has maintained an active and friendly nature community in Ingersoll. We welcome newcomers to participate in any and all activities.

Join us in a nature walk or other community activity. Please see our Club Activities for details of our planned hikes and meetings through our programming year. Our group typically meets monthly, in informal gatherings, to enjoy outings in nature areas in and adjacent to Oxford County.

We are interested in the development and preservation of nature in Oxford County, and are formal stewards of the 36 acre (15 ha) Lawson Nature Reserve, south of Ingersoll.

We are involved in:

  • Hiking and enjoying southwestern Ontario’s natural heritage
  • Fostering family events to ensure our children are exposed to local natural attractions
  • Stewarding the Lawson Nature Reserve – invasive species management, hillside restorations, trail maintenance, signage, etc.
  • Encouraging seniors in active living through walks at the Nature Reserve
  • Celebrating Earth Day
  • Advocating on behalf of nature in general

So please, take a look around our site. You can see what we are all about, the activities that we offer, our signature trails and more. If you’re interested in becoming a member, you can click here.

Also please find IDNC articles and content in the OPAL Newsletter published by Oxford People Against the Landfill.

Happy Trails!
