Join us in at New Harmony Farm in Newbury for a butterfly garden workshop and installation, focusing on the Monarch butterfly. We will be helping to transfer a front yard septic leach field into a wonderful Modernist Butterfly and Beneficial Insect Garden.
As you are dividing your perennials this spring, please think of the butterfly garden, and bring along your extra:
Monarda - Bee Balm
Echinacea - coneflowers
Asclepias - swamp milkweed and or butterfly weed
Eupatorium hyssopifolium - hyssop leaved bonset
Phlox paniculata - summer phlox
Agastache - hyssop
Amsonia hubrectii - Blue Star
We will begin the day at 10 AM for the garden installation, break around Noon for lunch (BYO). At 1 PM we'll hear about butterflies from a local biologist and Farmer Erin will share information about butterfly garden design.
