The Pollinator Garden site design is 80-100 square feet in any shape. Workshop participants will gain practical experience in a hands-on outdoor activity at the end of class. Workshop members will draft a diagram or map to use at home during the first session. Session II, August 26, 5:30 – 7:00. This session presents the garden plants that flower with an emphasis on native plants. The Langlois Library’s garden pollinator map will serve as a model. Participants will be supported in choosing site appropriate plant materials. Session III, September 23, 5:30 pm – 7:00 pm. The final session brings together all elements for making a small pollinator- supporting garden. Timing the planting to the right season and choosing appropriate plants for the prepared site AND PLANTING the Langlois Library pollinator garden are all included in the final session.
