Posted on 20 February 2017 by calvin

native plants 01Are you looking for ways to make your yard more bee and butterfly friendly? Come to the Longfellow Garden Club Mar. 8 meeting and learn how to transition your yard to attract and nurture not only pollinators and butterflies, but birds, too!

Master Gardener Ruth Peterson will talk about her experiences learning about the many benefits that native plants offer our landscapes. You will learn how to gradually incorporate Minnesota native alternatives that bring beautiful flowers and structure to the garden and supply food and shelter for birds and insects. These native perennials are better ecological solutions and need easier care than many of the traditional garden plants that we commonly use.

Bring paper and pen to take notes; we will have a handout. The meeting begins 7pm on Wed., Mar. 8: come early and help set up. Epworth United Methodist Church, 3207 37th Ave. S.
