Spring Into Gardening Walk
Hosted by Ann Dailey, Master Gardner
Tuesday, April 24
Meet at Hurwitz Green, John Dickinson Campus: 7:45 a.m.
Walk begins promptly at 8 a.m. Join us for this morning Garden Walk that originates on the Hurwitz Green in front of the Stern Center. Master Gardner Ann Dailey will fill the walk with facts and fun as we walk through the college's many gardens and learn about the horticultural wonders planted across the campus. One out of every three bites of food we eat, and approximately 80% of all flowering plants are pollinated by insects and animals we call pollinators: butterflies and moths, bees, birds, beetles and more. Many of them, especially bees and butterflies, are declining rapidly due to habitat loss, disease, and pesticide use. You can help these beneficial insects and animals by filling your yard with pollinator-friendly plants, shrubs, and trees that provide the food and shelter needed for survival. Learn about what makes a plant pollinator-friendly, and how to grow it in your garden. A special emphasis on our own Kaufman pollinator garden, planted last spring, will tempt you with new ideas. Employees may register now for the Spring Into Gardening Walk in Totara via the Gateway: Enroll in the Spring Into Fitness Challenge course, then “sign-up” for this event.
