Pollinator Garden Workshops 

Workshops are four hours long and include a lecture + slide show, and a tour of the pollinator garden. The cost of the workshop is $25 and includes a CD of resources plus locally grown native perennial milkweed plants. Space is limited to 25 participants in each so we can have a quality tour with demonstrations.
