Log onto Countryside Stewardship Connection (, an online discussion forum, on Wednesday, August 19 from 8 to 8:30 p.m. Learn how to design and grow a native plant garden that will benefit local pollinators, support biodiversity, increase soil health, look beautiful and impress your neighbours. Post your questions for answers from CVC ecological gardening expert and landscape architect, Karen Bannister.

“The Countryside Stewardship Connection is a free online resource. It’s a great way for landowners to connect with each other and with CVC experts,” said Mike Puddister, Deputy CAO and Director of Watershed Transformation at CVC. “We encourage landowners to become members and to take advantage of the information and resources that we offer. It’s a great way to learn how to care for your land and water.”

The Countryside Stewardship Connection is a new online discussion forum for rural landowners living in the Credit River watershed. The forum is a community-based platform where landowners can ask questions, share information, post and map stewardship projects and find out about upcoming local events. With over 100 members, the Connection is a great place to meet neighbours and share information.

CVC will also be hosting additional ‘Ask the Expert’ events in September and October at Participants must be a member of the Connection and be logged on to post questions. Membership is free and only takes a few minutes to enroll.
