Attracting Pollinators Workshop
April 7—9:30 am - 12:30 pm$15 - $20
We depend on local populations of insect pollinators for most seed and fruit production in agriculture, horticulture, and wild plants. Come learn about the diversity of plant species that appeal to these important insects throughout the growing season. Along with our new building, we have a number of new planting beds. We made a lot of progress here on the landscape during our first growing season. But, we have a lot more we want to do. You can help us and get ideas for your own gardens.
April 5 Evening Talk: Tom will focus on the most attractive pollinator-friendly plants, where they grow best in the landscape. You will leave full of ideas for designing your home gardens. Tom will follow up with links to key information to further your research and pollinator attracting success.
April 7 Design Charrette: Join us for a design ‘charrette’ for some beds here at our new building. During these two days you will learn about and inspect our site, refer to what you learned in the pollinator-friendly plants presentation, and then try your hand at designing bee and butterfly meadow gardens that complement the building.
