Gardening for Diversity - A Hands-On Workshop

October 16
Hitchcock Nature Center

The great outdoors begins in your own backyard. Join us for our new programming series "Gardening for Diversity". Saturday, October 16th at 3:00 p.m. at Hitchcock Nature Center. Participants at this session will learn how to identify and harvest native seeds, how to store them for the future, & how to continue to enhance your gardens at home!

Gardening for Diversity is a series that will walk participants through creating your own diverse native gardens through a mix of classroom learning & hands-on gardening exercises. Each session will cover different aspects of native gardening, from planning to planting to maintaining, & is perfect for beginning gardeners & anyone who is looking for new ways to incorporate native plantings in your own garden.

Attendees will enjoy hands-on work as they plan, plant, & maintain a native garden with guidance from our staff. Attendees are not required to attend every program session but each programming session will build on the next & our recommendation is to attend as many as you are able to for the best experience.
