Pollinator Gardening Workshop & Garden Tour – 2 weeks away

Pittsboro, NC

2:00pm - 5:00pm

The Chatham County Center of North Carolina Cooperative Extension will offer a pollinator conservation workshop and garden tour as part of its Enhancing Sustainability Series on Wednesday, October 1, 2014 from 2:00-5:00 p.m. starting in the auditorium of the Agriculture Building in Pittsboro. Chatham County Agricultural Extension Agent Debbie Roos will give an overview of North Carolina pollinators and discuss the role of native bees and managed bees in crop pollination. Participants will learn about the principles of planting a pollinator garden and – just in time for fall planting – how to select trees, shrubs, herbaceous perennials, herbs, vines, and grasses to attract a diversity of pollinators. Debbie will emphasize native plants but also include a few other plants that provide good resources. The workshop will conclude with a tour of Cooperative Extension's pollinator garden at Chatham Mills, about half a mile from the Agriculture Building. The garden is comprised of 145 different species and cultivars, 85% of which are native to the piedmont of North Carolina. The workshop will be repeated on Saturday October 4 so participants can select the most convenient date.
