Workshop - 3 Sessions
Making a Pollinator Garden
Each session provides you with instruction, original curriculum handouts and reference materials developed for our local ecoregion, to support you in designing your garden. These worksheets guide you and introduce suitable native plants for your location and conditions. Classes are held at the nursery, preferably out doors but in case of rain we will meet in the greenhouse.
Session 1 September 24th, 10 am
explains how to “read” or assess the land on which you are establishing a bed, roughly between 100 and 200 square feet for your pollinator patch. Larger spaces can just repeat the same plant list, assuming conditions are the same.
You will receive supportive, original hand-outs to help you develop this plan we call a map. Use of native plants is emphasized because of the pollinators natural affinity for them as well as the plants drought tolerance, in most cases. There are plants for wet spaces or seasonally wet spaces. Creating your map if the first necessary step.
Session 2 October 8th, 10 am
