On Saturday, Sept 28 there will be a FREE fun educational afternoon program, the “Pollinator Potluck” at the Greenwich Botanical Center where you can learn how to manage invasive weeds and how to restore native habitats with pollinator plants.
The program is a Lunch and Lecture from Noon to 1:00pm followed by a Planting & Weed Wrangle from 1:00 to 3:00pm.
Kim Eierman, the Founder of EcoBeneficial, is an Environmental Horticulturist specializing in ecological landscapes and native plants.
She will show what invasive weeds look like and how to remove them. Kim will highlight native replacements that are healthier for our birds, environment and other wildlife. GBC and Greenwich Grown have been working together collecting native plant seeds and propagating them throughout the year so that these seeds have grown into viable plants that will be planted at the Greenwich Botanical Center and at Audubon and Greenwich Land Trust sites.
Bring your hat, long sleeves/pants, gloves, comfortable shoes, water bottle and sunglasses. Greenwich Botanical Center will provide all other necessary tools for the workshop.
This free event is presented by the Greenwich Garden Club Pollinator Projects and supported by Green Fingers and Hortulus Conservation Committees along with partners Audubon Greenwich, Greenwich Land Trust, Greenwich Tree Conservancy, Greenwich Conservation Commission, Happiness Is, The Study, Garden Club of America, Sam Bridge Nursery and Greenhouses, and the Connecticut Agricultural Experiment Station (CAES).
