Pollinator Gardens 101 - Back by Popular Demand!

  • Red Wagon Plants 2408 Shelburne Falls Road Hinesburg, VT, 05461 United States (map)

This workshop filled up quickly in April and we're offering it again so that more people can learn how to create beautiful and beneficial pollinator gardens.

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 process of planning and planting a pollinator garden. We will learn about the wide variety of at-risk native pollinators and how to select plants for all stages of their life cycles. 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 resources and a comprehensive plant list for their gardens.

$45 fee includes handouts, a custom planting plan, and refreshments.
