2024 Native Plant Garden Challenge

Started as a part of our 2021 Growing Native Plants Workshop, this program now runs every spring through fall as a community resource to encourage Albertans to dedicate even just a small patch of their garden (1 m by 1 m) to native plant pollinator habitat. Current ANPC members can access a plethora of resources and a community network by visiting our Member’s Portal.

Participants receive:

  • a Toolkit with information on creating and maintaining a native plant pollinator garden
  • access to a private Facebook group
  • opportunities to share and meet up
  • printable signs for display in your garden
  • help and advice if needed
