Bring your lunch and grow your skills!
On weekdays, the Humber Arboretum occasionally offers Lunch and Learns inside the Centre for Urban Ecology. Free for anyone to attend, these sessions are especially convenient for students, staff, and faculty of the college along with the local community. These sessions introduce topics related to gardening, ecology, and sustainability. Bring your lunch and enjoy a casual learning environment overlooking the Arboretum grounds.
