Co-sponsored by Sustainable Winchester /Farmers Market
How to Design and Plant Healthy Native Gardens and Honey Demo
Wednesday, February 11, 7 to 8:30 pm
Winchester Public Library, Large Meeting Room
Claudia Thompson from Grow Native Massachusetts will teach you about the importance of native plants for the health of your yard and local ecosystems and discuss how to convert a conventional garden to a largely native one. As an added bonus, Apiarist Mary Canning from Follow the Honey in Cambridge will provide a demonstration that compares the color, variety and flavors of honey collected by honeybees from different plants and why it is crucial to plant native and without pesticides.
This is the first of Winchester Trails' Seasonal Lecture/Workshop series that honors the memory of long-time member, Jean Smith. Winchester Trails is an environmental education volunteer group, that serves every child in our community. We encourage you to learn about us and join us at www.winchestertrails.org.
Founded in 1969, Winchester Trails, is a small organization of volunteers who lead Winchester elementary students on nature walks in the numerous Winchester conservation areas throughout the town. We are affiliated with the Winchester Public Schools. Our group includes outdoor enthusiasts, educators, scientists and nature lovers interested in sharing our passion and knowledge of nature with children - the next stewards of our lands.
