Plant a small pocket meadow & attract birds, bees, butterflies, and other vital pollinators to your yard. Many pollinators are in trouble due to pesticide and other chemical use, loss of habitat, invasive species, and disease.
We can help protect them one backyard at a time!
This is another great class put on by the Prince William County Master Gardeners and Virginia Cooperative Extension (VCE).
Here's the class description:
"Have a small space in your landscape that you want to convert from turf to flowers?"
Small 'pocket meadows' -- more like informal native perennial borders -- provide space for pollinator visits and habitat for seed-eating birds."
Join Kevin Munroe, Park Manager of Huntley Meadows Park in Fairfax County, for a discussion about small meadow planting and maintenance. This class is free; please register."
Please don't forget to register with the Master Gardeners if you plan to attend. It's easy. Just drop them an email with your name saying you're coming: [masked]
You can tell them you're with the Sustainable Prince William Meetup group. (Oh, and also RSVP here on Meetup!)
