Sunday, September 23, 2018, 2:00pm Planting for Pollinators - Beauty and Function in our Gardens - Sue Webb
All of us are looking to make our gardens beautiful and to make them sanctuaries that we enjoy both looking at and being in.   Now, more and more of us are realizing that there’s a real need to also make our gardens useful as well. We want to be able to contribute to a larger community that includes birds, bees, butterflies and other wildlife.  We’re seeing that the more we, as people, build and grow and expand in number and space, the less food, cover and nesting sites they have.  In fact, declines in all these species are reaching alarming levels that concern and affect us all.    It’s easy to make our gardens work for all of us, especially when we plant more natives.  Join Sue as she talks about how to incorporate more of our beautiful natives that pollinators love into our landscapes and how to not only design such multifunctional gardens but also maintain them with minimal time & effort.
