Having your own pollinator garden is like having your own outdoor classroom. The life that native wildflowers attracted to your yard is both breathtaking and an opportunity for young and old to connect with and learn about the natural world.
During my installations and maintenance visits I hope you and your family will want to learn about the plants and pollinators that you'll be helping. I will provide pictures and information about each of the species of wildflowers used in your planting in addition to insect ID guides to familiarize yourself with the pollinators you should expect to see.
I welcome the community to my public pollinator garden educationals held multiple times a year at pollinator gardens I have installed and to the annual fall monarch migration butterfly release held at the Monarch Waystation along the Black Mountain Greenway .
No public events currently scheduled.
Want to learn about meadow ecology, native plants and pollinators? Contact me about joining me on an installation. Its a win win as I get free labor and you get to learn about gardening for wildlife
Rearing Monarchs and other caterpillars that you find in your own garden can give them a better chance of survival while allowing you and your family experience the magic and beauty of transformation.
