What we’re about

The purpose of this group is to get people together for hands-on learning about plant identification. It will remain within Toronto and be TTC accessible, with an occasional exception. I will try to create a mix of available times for events; some weekends, some weekdays, some afternoons, some evenings.

You should join this group if you want to learn about local plants. You should also join this group if you have knowledge of local plants that you would like to share.

I am at an intermediate level of local plant knowledge. There is a lot that I don't know. I will try to answer as many question as possible about plants but I encourage everyone to bring their own plant and tree identification books so that we can all learn together! I will bring a selection of my own books to each and every event.

You can also join our Facebook group,, which is also called Immersive Botany: Toronto Tree and Plant Identification Club.

Now on instagram too!

It is not enough to know the names of plants. You have to have opportunities to use those words and commit the plants to memory.
