Wildlife planting workshop tomorrow – - – Free plants!!!!!

Hello Everyone,

We’re partnering with DDOE and the Audubon MD/DC to host a wildlife habitat workshop this Saturday from 1pm -4pm at Wangari Gardens.  We would love for everyone to come- should be lots of extra plants to take home.  If you can please pre register.  The DDOE announcement is below for more details.  Thanks!

The District Department of the Environment, Wangari Garden, and Audubon MD/DC, have teamed up to present a free workshop that will teach residents about creating space for wildlife habitat in their yards and community gardens.

Gardening for wildlife and using native plants can enhance a yard’s beauty and can also enhance nearby vegetable gardens by attracting pollinators and beneficial insects.  Come learn how native planting can complement your food growing efforts at Wangari Gardens.

The workshop will consist of a slideshow presentation, hands-on activities and a brief tour of the facility and garden.  Participants will then help plant a wildlife garden that will complement the Wangari Gardens’ future food growing space. Everyone will receive a habitat kit that includes a book, native plant guide, birdhouse kit and live plants to help them begin creating a wildlife habitat at home.

Date & Time:  Saturday October 13,      1pm-4pm
Location: Wangari Gardens:  Kenyon and Park Pl, Across the street from the Washington Hospital Center  (we’re on google maps)
Workshop Title:  Pollinator Gardens
