Come for a Lumber and Garden Party


We will be building cages for our native plant seedlings at the UWO greenhouses to protect them from hungry mice. We need 10 cages that are 22" wide, 48" long and at least 20" tall, with a lid that can be flipped open and secured down. See pictures below.

We will also be re-potting our seedlings.

Come for the construction, the gardening or both. Pop in or stay for the whole session.


  • Scrap lumber
  • Hinges
  • Wood screws, with screw driver or drill
  • Staple guns
  • Wire mesh with holes ¼” or smaller
  • Screw in hooks


We have space for 20 volunteers.

UWO Greenhouses are located within the BGS (Biological and Geological Science) building.
