Erin will provide simple tips and tricks that you can implement in your own home garden to attract pollinators and promote pollinator conservation. She will provide an overview of her favorite pollinator-friendly perennials and garden must-haves for growing in Zones 4/5. After her talk, she’ll have locally grown cut tulip bouquets for sale.
