Hello, wildlife gardeners! Last year, I certified Big City Little Homestead’s garden as Wildlife-Friendly with the Canadian Wildlife Federation (you can too, and I’ll help!). As the Montreal Botanical Garden offers a similar service, I also registered my garden there. Here are the certificates I received:

Here is where you can register your garden: http://espacepourlavie.ca/mon-jardin. Certification is annual, so you need to update your pictures every year, by October 15th. There are three themes for certification:

  • Biodiversity garden
  • Bird  garden
  • Monarch oasis

They have a map extension they call the “Gardenaut Gallery,” so that you can visit the photos that gardeners have submitted to the program – there are over over 300 entries in all of Quebec!
