From Buzz to Chirps and Flashes: Creating an Eco-Friendly Garden
In collaboration with the Hasbrouck Heights Garden Club. Meet & Greet is at 5:30 PM and the program starts at 6:00 PM.
You can create a garden that buzzes with life and attracts butterflies, bees, fireflies, and other insects! This presentation discusses how our ecosystems are out of balance and what gardeners can do to improve the environment by creating habitat for many pollinators. Garden design, maintenance, and plant selection are addressed as well as specific host plants.
