For Us and Them: Edible Native Plants for Pollinators with Dan Jaffe, New England Wild Flower Society
Thursday September 27, 2018 1pm EST
There are a variety of reasons why people chose to grow plants. The most common reason is often aesthetic in nature; we like the look of a garden, it gives us a place to relax or play or drink wine with friends. However simple beauty is not always enough for people, the popularity of edible and pollinator gardens has skyrocketed of late, but these trends can be complicated. Which plants attract which pollinators? Which edibles are resistant to diseases and pests? What if you could have it all? A beautiful, edible garden that supports a myriad of pollinators, what if it could be easy? Join Dan Jaffe of the New England Wild Flower Society ot learn how low maintenance native plants can feed us and the pollinators together.
