Pollinator Garden Workshop

On October 10, 2018, the Lennox & Addington Stewardship Council hosted a Pollinator Garden Workshop in Odessa. About 45 attendees learned how to create and maintain an all-season garden for native insects and birds.

Maya Navrot, education coordinator for Quinte Conservation, presented Pollinator Friendly Yards, a photo presentation built on many years of experience teaching schools and organizations how to design pollinator gardens.

Pollinator friendly yards can take on many looks from wildflower meadow spaces to tended flower gardens. The simple introduction of wildflowers and flowering shrubs into a current garden space may be an easy option. With many lovely photos, Maya demonstrated suggested native species (North American and more locally native) that are great nectar producers and host plants for insect larvae. The presentation of flowers progressed from April-May blooming wildflowers through to October, so that pollinators are supported throughout our flowering seasons. Helpful trees, shrubs and grasses were also mentioned.

A panel of specialists helped to field questions from the audience. The panel included

Kathleen Law, outreach program manager of Pollinator Partnership, www.pollinator.org

Amanda Tracey, conservation biologist for Nature Conservancy Canada, www.natureconservancy.ca

Peter Fuller owner of Fuller Native and Rare Plants in Belleville, fullerplants.com

Elizabeth Churcher, Quinte Field Naturalists director and life-long gardener, www.facebook.com/QuinteFieldNaturalists
