Native Gardening for Pollinators and Songbirds

About this Course

This class offers an in-class lecture (on campus) and native garden tour (off campus)  during a period of peak pollinator activity with mid to late summer blooms.  Get to know the keystone plants necessary to support pollinators and other wildlife in this area. Learn how to access your property to make the most of its habitat potential and select the right native plants to compliment your site.  We will look at gentle gardening techniques to reduce maintenance, improve soil and support pollinators and songbirds.  You can extend your secession of bloom, add four season interest to your garden, and create the sense of place that is Southern New England by adding more native plants. We will look at smaller, compact natives suitable for more formal areas of the garden and foundation plantings.  The first class will meet on campus, and the second class will be an outdoor garden tour.  Details will be given out in the first class.
