Digging Deeper: Designing a Garden For Pollinators

Digging Deeper: Designing a Garden For Pollinators

A Garden for Birds

Sun, May 5, 2024
2:00 PM- 4:00 PM

Since 1970, bird numbers have plunged along with the insects that they depend upon. Habitat loss, climate change, pesticide use, window collisions, and outdoor cats are the primary culprits. Join Valerie Matzger and Keeyla Meadows, garden designers who both specialize in creating gardens with successful use of California native plants that put pollinators to the fore while also being visually attractive and inviting to people.

Topics covered will include selection and appropriate placement of native plants, information on applying color design principles to a habitat garden, fountain construc­tion, irrigation installation, and placement of garden features such as seating areas and water features to enhance pleasures and functionality of habitat gardens. Explore these principles at Valerie’s home garden, which has been visited by 47 species of birds, giving the garden peace and animation with their songs and movement.
