Gardening for Pollinators: Penn State Master Gardener Pollinator Garden Certification
Sunday, April 26 from 2:00 -3:30 pm
Presented by Chester County Master Gardeners Sharon Richardson and Nancy Sage
Birds, bees, bats, and butterflies play a vital role in the ecology of our region. These pollinators ensure the survival of the plants that bring us fruits, vegetables, nuts, oils, fibers as well as those that prevent soil erosion and sequester carbon. Join us as we learn how to safeguard their future. Sharon and Nancy will explain the Penn State Master Gardener Pollinator Garden certification program, how homeowners can earn the designation, and why it is so vital that we create a community of connected pollinator friendly landscapes. Attendees will leave with plant lists, a free starter plant, and the knowledge to make an environmental impact in their neighborhood. Our knowledgeable volunteers will be in the plant shop following the lecture to answer questions.
$10 for members; $15 for non-members. Registration required.
