Planting For Pollinators Register Here

Native plants and their pollinator partners have a unique and important relationship, which other organisms, including people, often depend upon. During this workshop, Deanna English of the Litzinger Road Ecology Center and alumni of the EarthDance Farm & Garden Apprenticeship will share about the important role that gardeners and farmers play in supporting the unique biodiverse region we and our other non-human kin call home.  Once we have a little background, we will head out on the farm to explore EarthDance projects and see what we can discover.
