CHS Youth Challenge: Bee the Change: Plant Natives

March 17, 2023 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm


Cannington Horticultural Society once again proudly offers youth members a summer challenge! This year the focus is on planting natives and encouraging habitat for the pollinators. ‘Bee the Change: Plant Natives’ says it all! All participants will receive some free native plants to get them started, learn about what grows in our area and who it attacts. There was a kick off workshop held on March 4, 2023 which taught winter sowing of native flower seeds and those who attended went home with a head start on the growing season. But it’s not too late to join, more free natives will be available – you just need to register!

There will be $400 in prize money awarded for the top six gardens in the challenge. Two age groups for the Youth: 8 to 12 and 13 to 17. Get growing with us!

For complete details and how to register with us email:

OR sign up at any of the CHS Monthly Meetings. Deadline to register for this challenge is late June.

Join us and bee part of the fun learning about natives! Only $3 for a Youth Membership. CHS offers a complete program both in the Flower and Photography schedule throughout the season for youth members. Get your Yearbook when you register and join the fun.
