Your Garden through the Eyes of a Pollinator
All gardeners know a pollinator garden has a water source, rocks for sunning, and a wide variety of plants to attract insects and birds alike. However, from the eyes of a pollinator the garden is viewed very differently. Learning what they are seeking will enable you to attract a wide variety of pollinators once you look at your garden through their eyes.
Join us for a complimentary glass of beer or wine while enjoying the lecture.
