May 2014 meeting: Pollinator Gardens

Please welcome Debbie Roos of the Chatham County Extension Program as she shares her expertise in gardening to support pollinators – especially honeybees!  One of her many accomplishments has been coordination of the design, installation and maintenance of the Pollinator Paradise Garden at Chatham Mills in Pittsboro – a true gem of a pollinator-friendly garden.  Debbie leads monthly tours of the garden, and will share her experience by discussing principles of planting a pollinator garden and how to select tress, shrubs, herbaceous perennials, herbs, vines and grasses to attract and support a diversity of pollinators.

Social time will start at 7 p.m., with the business meeting starting at 7:30 p.m.

Please note that the May meeting will be held at the Raleigh Police Club, 3500 Leonard Road, Knightdale, NC 27545.
