Description:

The Chatham County Center of North Carolina Cooperative Extension will offer three fall pollinator conservation workshops and garden tours as part of its Enhancing Sustainability Series on Tuesday September 11, Monday September 17, AND Saturday September 22, starting at the Chatham County Agriculture & Conference Center in Pittsboro. This is the same workshop offered on three different dates to accommodate participants’ schedules and keep class size small. Chatham County Agricultural Extension Agent Debbie Roos will give an overview of North Carolina pollinators and discuss the role of native bees and managed bees in crop pollination. Participants will learn about the principles of planting a pollinator garden and how to select trees, shrubs, herbaceous perennials, herbs, vines, and grasses to attract a diversity of pollinators. Debbie will emphasize native plants but also include a few other plants that provide good resources. The workshop will conclude with a tour of Cooperative Extension’s pollinator garden at Chatham Mills. The garden is comprised of over 210 different species, 85% of which are native to North Carolina.
