Starting Your Native Garden: The How’s and Why’s You Can be the Link to Saving Our Pollinators and Songbirds!

About this Course

Planning to garden this coming spring with native plants?  This class will explore the new best practices for taking care of your soil, understanding how pollinators and plants interact to support the environment, and preparing and designing your gardens to bring beauty and nourishment to your neighborhood wildlife starting on your own property and/or your own balcony!  And once you’ve gotten your space underway, we’ll see how volunteering to help improve small planted areas in your community can bring butterflies, moths, bees and many other pollinators and songbirds to grace your town.  The second class will be a workshop to sow native seeds that were collected from our local areas; you will select, prepare and sow them and will take them home to stratify in your yard or on your balcony/patio until spring urges their germination. All materials for the workshop will be provided, including the seeds which will have been collected in summer and autumn 2023!
