Landscaping for Pollinators

The Colonial Triangle Unit of the Herb Society will feature a presentation, "Landscaping for Pollinators" by Denise Greene at its open meeting on Tuesday, October 11.

Ms. Greene, the owner of Sassafras Farm in Hayes, VA ,will inspire you with ways to incorporate native plants into your landscape in a common-sense way. She will take a closer look at the planting conditions most often faced in Tidewater and suggest native trees, shrubs and perennials that thrive in those places, thus making your garden more successful, less maintenance intensive, and friendlier to wildlife and the environment in general.

Ms. Greene, an expert in native plants, is a vendor at the Williamsburg Farmers Market, and has been a key-note speaker at many local venues, including the CNU and CW Symposiums. Her presentation will feature Mountain Mint, Pycanthemum Michx, named a Notable Native Herb in 2016.

The meeting will be held at Our Saviour Lutheran Church, 7479 Richmond Rd., in Norge beginning at 1 PM and is free of charge. For more information, contact Sally Sissel at 757-258-9638.
