In-person class at BBG
Discuss the importance of creating native habitat in your backyard, no matter how small or large. Learn how to maintain your gardens, native plantings, meadows and woodlands for biodiversity. Stewardship of these plantings is one of the best ways to create sustainable systems for both the gardener and pollinator community. We will look at how our maintenance practices affect the number of pollinators and birds in our yards and communities, as well as the simple changes we can implement to make our properties pollinator havens. This class pairs well with The Native Plant Pallete.
