Hello, fellow wildlife gardener! 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!). Here’s the certificate I received:
The Montreal Botanical Garden “Espace pour la vie” offers a similar service, so I also registered my garden there. 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 300 entries in all of Quebec!
