Join Hattie White for a step by step look at how to help our most vulnerable allies, the pollinators. This workshop will go through the plant selection process of planting a pollinator garden. We will be learning more about the wide variety of our at-risk native pollinators, their life cycle, and how to plant for all stages of a pollinator’s lifecycle. Different site conditions will be discussed and how to choose plants for the sun or shade, and dry or wet soils. Participants will go home with resource lists and a comprehensive plant list for their gardens.
$30 fee includes handouts, a custom planting plan and refreshments.
