Event description

Description

The Chatham County Center of North Carolina Cooperative Extension will offer a Pollinator Garden Design Workshop as part of its Enhancing Sustainability Series on three dates this spring: Wednesday, May 29, Saturday, June 8, and Tuesday, June 11. The workshop will be held from 9 am till 4 pm at the Chatham County Agriculture & Conference Center in Pittsboro. This is the same workshop offered on three different dates to accommodate participants’ schedules and keep class size small. This is a NEW two-part workshop. The first part of the workshop will focus on designing a habitat for a small farm or home landscape that will provide resources for diverse pollinators. Chatham County Agricultural Extension Agent Debbie Roos will talk about design principles but focus on the practical such as winning plant combinations and the best pollinator plants for each season. Participants will be given the tools to create a basic pollinator garden design that can be planted at their farm or garden. The second part of the workshop includes a tour of the Chatham Mills “Pollinator Paradise” garden in Pittsboro to see over 215 species of perennials, trees, shrubs, vines, and grasses, 85% of which are native to North Carolina. Participants will receive 10 locally grown native perennial plants to take home to plant for pollinators! Angelina’s Kitchen will cater a delicious locally sourced lunch. Advance registration is required for this workshop. Space is limited so please register early to reserve your spot (they always fill up before the deadline!). The cost of the workshop is $60 and includes a catered lunch, handouts, a flash drive of resources, plus 10 native perennial pollinator plants. Call 919-542-8244 or email debbie.roos@chathamnc.org if you have questions.
