Springtime Gardening Event

Thursday, April 20th, from 5:30 PM to 8:30 PM join us for a discussion on Rain gardens in your landscape, pollinators in the garden (and how invasive plants affect them) and how to forecast a frost event in your garden.

Rain Gardens will be presented by Deb Bigelow and Mary Lu Wells - find the perfect spot for a rain garden in your landscape, learn how to design it, what plants can survive in wet/damp spots as well as during times of drought. 

Pollinators in the Garden - Tamsen Gildard and Patty Sherman - Changing climate patterns, pesticide contamination and other environmental factors are threatening pollinator populations. This presentation will offer ways in which you can help protect our pollinators. You will be given lists of plants you can use in your landscape and garden to encourage pollinators. 

Frost Effects on our Plants - Mary Lu Wells - Learn about how and when frost can affect your plants and when you will need to protect them. You can begin forecasting frost in your own garden with these tools.

Sign-up soon, as space is limited. Pre-registration and payment are required to hold your spot. No refunds, but substitutions are happily accepted. Contact Colleen Cavagna at cc746@cornell.edu.
