The Giving Garden: How to Improve the Planet from the Ground Up

Let’s save our planet together, one garden at a time!

Our flower and shrub gardens are more than mere decorative spaces.  They are fundamental to creating and supporting a healthy ecosystem that will help to sustain our planet. 

In honor of Earth Day, we welcome gardening aficionado and former Master Gardener Susan Salis for a special talk that will focus on ways home gardeners can:

  • Attract and protect a variety of pollinators
  • Add plants that will feed and protect birds
  • Reduce or eliminate fertilizers, pesticides, and herbicides
  • Attract and protect beneficial insects
  • Save water
  • Repurpose everyday items as garden décor

Not all superheroes wear capes – sometimes old pants and gloves will do!

Two Dates Offered!
