Arielle Dillonsmith firstname.lastname@example.org
Arielle is a commercial real estate lawyer in downtown Toronto, but she hardly seems like the corporate type. Arielle believes that urban intensification presents new opportunities for conservation, and hopes to use her passion for development to promote environmental education. Arielle is optimistic that as vertical communities become more prevalent, spaces will be created for common gardening, and she also encourages developers to consider the economic benefits of using native plants in their projects.

In October 2015, she took over as director of education at the Toronto Botanical Garden. Colleen is an avid native plant gardener who has maxed out her tiny downtown yard and bullied her way into neighbours’ yards. She has a special place in her heart for under-appreciated native shrubs such as serviceberry and chokeberry which provide nourishment for bugs, birds and people.
