Spring tours of North Carolina Cooperative Extension’s Pollinator Paradise Demonstration Garden in Pittsboro start on May 11!

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! The tours are led by Chatham County Agriculture Agent Debbie Roos.

There is no charge for the tour but registration is required to limit group size. The tours fill up very quickly so don’t delay in registering if you really want to attend.

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 spring tours and will later post additional dates for summer and fall.

I look forward to seeing you at the garden!
