Free, Hand-On Workshop
When: Wed, Mar 22, 2017 6:30PM-9PM
Come to Lao Buddhist Center to learn about pollinators. Join Johnson Creek Watershed Council and East Multnomah Soil and Water Conservation District (EMSWCD) for a free workshop, and check out a recently planted native plant meditation garden at the Lao Buddhist Center.
Gardens are pollinated by a variety of insects that help flowers set seed and help fruit & vegetable plants produce an edible harvest. Mostly familiar with European honey bees, few of us realize the numerous flies, beetles, moths and butterflies that might literally be at our doorsteps, providing critical pollination services. In this workshop you will learn about the different kinds of pollinators that might be living in your garden, discover a plant palette to help attract and support pollinators, and go beyond the bloom to consider ways to provide shelter, water, nesting, and overwintering sites.
