Restoration Workshop

Thames Talbot Land Trust
Please join us on November 1st 2015 at the Sparta Community hall for the Fall 2015 Ecological Restoration Workshop.  This workshop is a combination of lecture and hands-on practice with restoration techniques such as seed collecting, processing and planting of native species. The workshop is aimed at anyone with an interest in growing native plants - in their gardens or for large scale restoration projects.

The workshop will be led by Mary Gartshore, an accomplished and well-respected ecologist and educator. Space is limited, register today to avoid disappointment!  This event will be open to the public on October 13th 2015.
