Bees, Blooms and Your Native Garden Workshop, April 1, 10am-12pm

Pollinator gardening is on the rise as “wild” gardens have become a trend.  Join Master Gardener, Jennifer Lazewski, on Saturday, April 1 from 10am-12pm for a presentation and garden design workshop.  Help pollinators thrive with native plants and continuous blooms! Travel through the seasons from spring to fall learning about native bees, how to identify them, and the native plants that support them.

Immediately following the presentation, you are invited to join Jennifer and DNR staff for a hands-on native garden planning workshop.  We will provide you with a grid and plant templates to help you create your own native garden masterpiece.  If possible, please bring along a Google Earth printout of your yard, along with the space dimensions, lighting and soil type of the desired area. We would love to offer you suggestions and ideas to help transform your yard into a pollinator paradise!

As a special perk for workshop participants, the pre-order sale for our Wildflowers for Wildlife native plant sale will be held open a few days extra for those that would like to order plants.  You can find the pre-order form here.  2023 Wildflowers for Wildlife pre-order form.

Jennifer is also a Master Naturalist who volunteers in land management and community science projects such as the Bumble Bee Brigade.
