Summer tours of North Carolina Cooperative Extension’s Pollinator Paradise Demonstration Garden in Pittsboro start at the end of June!

The tours are led by Chatham County Agriculture Agent Debbie Roos, and Debbie is very excited to be able to offer tours again after taking a pause during 2020 due to the pandemic. The five spring garden tours filled quickly and attracted folks from around the region.

The garden features over 225 species of perennials, trees, shrubs, vines, and grasses, and 85% of them are native to North Carolina. This is a great opportunity to visit the popular gathering spot for honey bees, native bees, butterflies, hummingbirds, and beneficial insects in addition to their human admirers!

There is no charge for the tour but registration is required to limit group size.

Visit the Pollinator Garden Tour web page for a listing of tour dates and times and links to register. I have posted several dates for summer tours and will soon post additional dates for the fall.

I have also created virtual garden tours and am busy making more for this year.

I look forward to seeing you at the garden!
