Making your own plants using seeds, cuttings, and divisions is a fun way to make gardening more affordable and to learn about plant life cycles, support pollinators and reduce waste.

This online workshop will provide participants with an introduction to propagation and an opportunity to discuss sharing among campus gardeners. What kind of difference would it make to campus gardening, biodiversity and community life if making and sharing plants were part of our daily lives? How can we encourage the sharing of plants and other gardening materials among our community?

Join our workshop hosts, Erin Despard, current Artist in Residence at UBC Botanical Garden, and Egan Davis, Principal Instructor of the UBC Botanical Garden Horticultural Training Program for this educational and inspiring conversation about making and sharing plants.
