Spring Seminar: The Importance of Native Bees & Simple Elements of Design for Container Planting

Saturday, April 9, 2022 - 10:00am to 12:00pm

Part I:  The Importance of Native Bees.   Participants will learn about our native Mason Bees and their importance as pollinators to the environment.  You will learn how these gentle solitary creatures help with pollination.  Attendees will make a native bee house to take home for their garden.

Part II:  Simple Elements of Design for Container Planting.  Participants will learn some simple elements of design and how to create a striking planter using “Thrillers”, “Fillers” and “Spillers” for your porch or garden.  Flowers from the Sandyvale Memorial Gardens Conservancy Greenhouse will be featured.  All other materials will be provided so that everyone will have a finished container planting to take home.

(The take home projects from this Garden Club workshop would make great Mother’s Day gifts for your favorite gardener.)
