Roncesvalles United Church was abuzz with activity as the spring weather was finally upon us on Saturday, May 11th. The Horticultural Societies of Parkdale & Toronto held their annual Plant Fair just in time for Mother’s Day. There were many plants to choose from including pollinators, natives, perennials and annuals, houseplants, herbs and vegetables and some hard to get plants all at the best prices in town. Shoppers could also purchase arts and crafts from local artisans, praying mantis eggs for you to hatch at home and bee nests for solitary gentle, pollinator bees. Best of all there was free advice on plants, soil, eco-friendly gardening and tree care. All proceeds went back into the community to nurture all sorts of greening initiatives, community garden projects and horticultural education outreach.
