NEW Habitat Gardening Series in February and March:
Replacing Your Lawn with Plants that Create Habitat for Enjoyable Wildlife such as Songbirds, Butterflies and More! (RYLPCHEWSBM!)
In this new series we have an incredible line-up of knowledgeable speakers who will inspire you to create beautiful native gardens that are more than just drought tolerant flowering plants to replace your lawn. (Wait, there are MORE benefits to planting natives than saving water? You betcha!)
Planting native plants provides new life to your garden by providing a food source and living space for pollinators like birds and butterflies. Make it easier for them. They struggle to find food and shelter in our urban areas filled with what to them is utterly useless - lawn, flower beds, hyper organized over-maintained "landscapes." With the right plants, it is possible to invite a host of hummingbirds, songbirds and beneficial insects to the garden. In addition to attracting these delightful visitors, you will find you draw something else - yourself! You may just find yourself out in your garden more - enjoying these delightful critters every day!
Mark your calendars. All workshops are at 9:30 am.
