There is plenty of free parking. Transit and driving information is here


Both Lorraine and Daniel will have books available for purchase at the event. Note that book sales are cash only.

Lorraine Johnson

Author, activist, and gardener Lorraine Johnson looks at garden resilience. What will more frequent and longer droughts, bigger storms, temperature extremes, habitat loss, and species decline mean for us? Lorraine will focus on the many ways that our gardens can be places of ecological health and positive action.

Daniel Coleman

Award-winning author and McMaster professor Daniel Coleman brings together views about our role as urban humans in what we could call land justice, both in environmental terms and in relation to Indigenous people. What would it mean to think of plants and animals–and people different from us–as parts of our families?
