Reems Creek Nursery
Saturday, June 24
10:00 am – 11:30 pm
With Tanya LaCorte and Ruth Gonzalez
Bee sweet to our pollinators! Whether you are planting porch pots or entire yards…plant it and they will come! Create a smorgasbord of beautiful blooming plants and butterfly host plants that provide much-needed habitat for pollinators, butterflies, and hummingbirds. With an emphasis on native plants, these lively gardens are full of color, support wildlife, and bring you delight throughout the season.
We’ll discuss the basic needs of any pollinator garden, how to enhance the effectiveness of your pollinator habitat, and touch on certifying your Pollinator Habitat through Asheville-Bee City USA. Questions are welcome!
One garden at a time, every little bit of habitat we create makes our world a better place.
**Our classroom space is limited. If your plans change and you are unable to attend, please cancel your ticket in Eventbrite so that others may have your space. Thank you for your consideration!
