    Gardening is a passion and bird watching is too so creating a beautiful space is an ongoing process to attract more wildlife and enjoy the beauty of nature.

    I just wanted to have a property that replaced the biodiversity that urban development always erases and almost never replaces. I also wanted to make it prominent because the ostentatious Italianate paving style that people think is in vogue is the exact opposite of what we need; at least lawns have some respite for nature. Presenting the alternative might inspire others to not feel obliged...

    I can't get out of the city very often, so I wanted a place where I could feel close to the natural world in the middle of the city. I have always had a vegetable garden, so the first thing to do when I moved to this house over 20 years ago was to dig up a good part of the lawn and prepare beds for vegetables. As as the years went by, I added flowers, mainly native species, to attract birds and...

    Welcome to Andie's Garden! I have been tending this garden for three years since my mother, Andie, died in 2020. Before then, her and my father transformed the land around their house (plus the rental property next door) into a little oasis in the city. And I'm talking replacing asphalt with in ground garden beds now rich with years of household compost. During the three years that I have...

    My garden, "Bursting Biophilia: Mixed Perennial Border," is rooted in a desire to restore as much organic life as possible to the sterile urban landscape. My neighbourhood of Hochelaga is dominated by hard, unforgiving surfaces: asphalt, brick, iron, steel, and a sidewalk so hot it burns. To make this zone more welcoming, I have therefore established in the tiny space in front of my triplex a...

    One of the main reason I created a backyard butterfly oasis is to do my part in helping the survival of the Monarch Butterfly. It has been quite a journey watching the life cycle of the Monarch from egg to adult. I find it fascinating to witness a caterpillar turn into such a beautiful and gentle creature. Last year, I started planting milkweed especially common and butterflyweed. I added more...

    L’école de Montarville a décidé de faire son premier jardin en 2022. Cette initiative fut un vif succès ! Les élèves, les parents et le personnel de l’école ont participé activement à toutes les étapes de la conception de ce magnifique jardin. Ce fut un projet rassembleur qui a permis aux enfants de faire plusieurs apprentissages tels que la planification, l’observation, faire des semis et en...

    Je suis bénévole dans un jardin communautaire. Près du jardin, il y a une immense roche, je me disais que ce serait joli d’y ajouter des fleurs. Après réflexion, l’idée d’un jardin à papillon m’est venu. Les fleurs c’est joli, les papillons aussi. À la suite de mes lectures sur le sujet, j’ai réalisé la dimension de la biodiversité. Après une permission de la ville et l’enthousiasme de quelques...

    Les marches dans les parcs styles prairies en fleur, les jardins anglais, le jardin botanique, c'est tellement joli que j'en voulais chez moi. Je suis une jardinière paresseuse (et TDAH) qui adore les fleurs, mais qui n'est pas toujours très bonne avec le suivi, discipline des choses. Créer des jardins plus autonomes qui sont adaptés au climat québécois, c'est un choix logique pour moi. Moins de...

    The Notre-Dame-des-Neiges Cemetery – A Haven for Biodiversity Since 2020, Notre-Dame-des-Neiges Cemetery has undertaken a major green shift to reduce the impact of its activities on the environment by significantly increasing its contribution to biodiversity on Mount Royal. Its 343-acre site is covered with more than 13,500 trees including four protected woodlands. After identifying and...
