Grow Easy Pollinator Habitat at Prairiewoods

- All Ages
Support our buzzing friends by establishing a pollinator garden of native prairie plants that will emerge next spring. Join facilitators Jen Kardos and Fred Meyer at Prairiewoods (120 East Boyson Road in Hiawatha) for this afternoon workshop. We will discuss top plants and seed mixes that thrive in Iowa’s climate. We will learn how to prepare a patch of turfgrass for seeding, prepare an existing garden bed for seeding and properly spread native prairie seed. Free seed packets of native prairie plants will be provided. We will discuss only organic methods, not synthetic pesticides or fertilizers. All experience levels are invited. Please dress for the weather, as we will be outside. The cost is $15. For more information or to register, contact Prairiewoods at www.Prairiewoods.org or 319-395-6700.
