Wednesday August 13 at 5:30 p.m. Chatham County Agriculture Agent Debbie Roos will be giving a tour of Chatham County Cooperative Extension’s Pollinator Paradise Demonstration Garden at Chatham Mills in Pittsboro. The garden was designed to provide forage habitat for pollinators such as honey bees, native bees, butterflies, flower flies, hummingbirds, beetles, and other beneficial insects.

No registration is required…just meet on the sidewalk in front of Chatham Marketplace at 5:30 p.m., rain or shine! The garden is looking great and has over 50 different species in bloom this week.

You can view photos of the garden on Extension’s Growing Small Farms website.

The garden is at 480 Hillsboro St. Pittsboro, NC 27312.

The “What’s in Bloom” section of the garden website features snapshots of the garden as well as photos of all the plants currently in bloom.

I also posted the garden tour schedule on the website in case you can’t make this month’s tour – I will be doing them monthly through October.

 I hope to see you there!
