Come to Lao Buddhist Center NW to join JCWC in Pleasant Valley at this free workshop put on by EMSWCD!
What: Attracting Pollinators to the Urban Garden.
Where: Lao Buddhist Center (17676 SE Foster Rd., 97080)
When: Wednesday, March 22nd 6:30-9 pm.
Bonus: Check out JCWC’s AmeriCorps member’s project-in-progress, the installation of an edible native plant meditation garden, at Lao Buddhist Center.
Gardens are pollinated by a variety of insects that help flowers set seed and help fruit & vegetable plants produce an edible harvest.
Mostly familiar with European honey bees, few of us realize the numerous flies, beetles, moths and butterflies that might literally be at our doorsteps, providing critical pollination services. In this workshop you will learn about the different kinds of pollinators that might be living in your garden, discover a plant palette to help attract and support pollinators, and go beyond the bloom to consider ways to provide shelter, water, nesting, and overwintering sites.
