Eastern White Cedar Workshop

Venue: Persephone Market Garden

Host: The Sustainability Project

Host Web site:


Persephone Market Garden

( ON, CA )

When: May 08, 2022 @ 10:00 AM

The project “Regenerate Grey Bruce” is offering its first outdoor workshop that will focus on aspects of the life-cycle of eastern white cedars that are native across vast tracts of Grey Bruce.

This outdoor workshop will showcase positive maintenance strategies for cedar tree forests that will improve biodiversity and make opportunities for succession.

Eastern white cedars make strong split rail fences, insect and rot-resistant cedar fence posts and are pliable to make ornamental gardening structures that can last decades in the outdoor environment.

Participants will learn how to make cedar garden art, cedar fences and trellises, as well as learn how to prune and manage cedar forest plantations in swampy areas to promote new growth.

The workshop will be led by long-time builder and gardener Tom Ashman from Rural Rootz. This in-person outdoor workshop will be hosted by Persephone Market Garden near Park Head.
