Event description

Description

Learn how to create a small piece of our vanishing ecosystem at home.

NHG welcomes the Greater Dallas Organic Garden Club and their August monthly meeting featuring NHG's Dana Wilson.

To counter declining prairie habitat and the related decrease in insect populations, 'pocket prairies' have become one of the most talked about topics in gardening and naturalist circles. Making a scaled-down version in your own landscape can have great value to the nature that surrounds us. Dana shows you how the prairie functions, with its inter-dependence between native grasses and flowers, and where to begin planting them to have a prairie in your own backyard.

2:30 PM Welcoming and refreshments

3:00 PM Presentation

Come learn how you can plan, plant, and maintain your pocket prairie in this FREE class. Our pollinators will be glad you did!
