Learn to Plant a Pollinator Garden
June 26 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Learn to create beautiful gardens in your yard that feed and house New England’s native pollinators. Join us for an evening educational garden program on Tuesday, June 26 at 6 p.m. co-hosted by the NRC and Pollinate New England, a new initiative of New England Wildflower Society (NEWFS). Landscape experts Annie White, University of Vermont horticulture researcher, and Mark Richardson, NEWFS botanic garden director, will lead a two-hour program on the plight of pollinators and how we can help by planting native gardens to support local insects, birds and other animals that pollinate our crops and flowers.
Attendees will also be the first to see Wellesley’s new pollinator garden, funded by a grant from Pollinate New England and installed that day at the Wellesley Police Station.
The program will be held in the Kingsbury Room at the Police Station and is FREE and open to the public; space is limited. Registernow to reserve your spot!
In addition to this program, Pollinate New England has created a database of resources that include garden kits, an online course, a plant database, and more. Visit NEWFS for more information.
