Join the Movement! Grow Flowers for Pollinators.

Have you noticed these signs around our neighborhood?

Want a beautiful pollinator garden for your home?

We are looking for neighbors interested in growing their own native gardens. The Danforth Gardens Neighbourhood Association is applying for a community grant that will provide free native pollinator plants for interested households. Planting will take place in 2022 and you will need to plant a minimum of 12 low-maintenance native plants (but you are welcome to plant and order more!) that support butterflies and birds. By joining this initiative you will be part of Danforth Garden's Pollinator Pathway project, which already includes eight front yard gardens, a garden at Oates Park, and three gardens at Danforth Gardens Public School.

If interested, and if you have any questions, please email info@danforthgardens.ca with your name and address by October 25

We have also published our October 2021 Newsletter. We invite you to open it for more neighbourhood news!

Ravine Events a Success!

Over 200 neighbours attended the ARTivating Our Ravines and Fall Discovery Walks events. Thank you to all that came out and learned about local plants, sketched the Taylor Creek landscape, identified ravine animals, built fairy houses and created chalk murals with us. And thank you to those who volunteered their time to create such special community events!

If you attended the events, please fill out this survey to tell us about your experience - it will only take two minutes and help us organize more events in the future.
