This workshop will focus on how to attract wildlife and pollinators. How can you best provide the three basic requirements for wildlife: food, water and shelter. Plus what plants to include throughout the year that will provide a good natural food source and ways to supplement. At the workshop, pot up a Tithonia seed (Mexican sunflower) to plant in your landscape. It’s the perfect perch for pollinators and makes a great cut flower too.
