“Everything You Need to Know about Birds and Bees: How We Support Pollinators and Birds with the Plants We Grow”
The Fells is delighted to welcome back garden writer Henry Homeyer for a workshop about creating beautiful gardens that also attract and sustain our native pollinators and birds. Gardening for beauty and our personal satisfaction can also enhance habitat for countless insects and animals, if we make informed choices in our plant selections. Learn about easy plants you might not know, and also plants you might want to avoid. Your questions will be answered after the presentation.
Meets in the Gatehouse Classroom. Members: $10, non-members: $20. Advanced registration requested.
To reserve call 603-763-4789 x3.
