Toronto Gone Wild

Mushrooming, Foraging & Native Pollinator Gardens in Toronto

Join us for a talk with authors Diane Borsato and Lorraine Johnson

Co-presented by Museum of Toronto and Spacing Store

Uncover how Toronto’s unique world of plants and mushrooms is right at your fingertips.

This talk on local foraging brings together authors Diane Borsato and Lorraine Johnson. Join us for an exploration of the colourful, beautiful, and occasionally peculiar plants found within Toronto’s cityscape.

Discover the dizzying array of mushrooms you can find in the city — both delicious and deadly kinds. Then, shift your attention to native plants, exploring how they support the lives of essential pollinators like native bees and butterflies.
