Buncombe County: Pollinator Habitat – Conservation and Restoration in Your Garden
Gardening in the Mountains Presents
Thursday, May 20, 2021
FREE Virtual Event
Many are familiar with the importance of pollinator gardens to provide food resources for pollinator species. However, food is just one component. Nesting and over-wintering areas, water, host plants, and shelter are equally important factors to consider when planning your pollinator garden.
This presentation will cover specific details about prepping, planting, and maintaining pollinator gardens as complete habitats. It will also discuss different opportunities and methods for implementing other pollinator-habitat components into your area—from assessing and developing a habitat suitable to your site to working with others in your neighborhood to create connected and contiguous habitat components. Join us as we take a deeper look into the elements and factors that are needed to go beyond just creating a nice flower garden. We’re talking habitat!
