A nature garden is more than just birds and the butterflies, it supports an entire web of life and, if executed correctly, you can turn a pretty garden into a living, thriving, alive space, filled with diversity and excitement throughout the year. Ron Vanderhoff, our resident naturalist, horticulturist and ecologist will show photographs and discuss some of the rest of the insects and animals that are part of a fully functioning Nature or Habitat garden. You will learn about how certain plants support specific insects and how those insects, in turn support many of the birds, reptiles and small mammals that visit healthy habitat gardens. This food web in a garden, when properly functioning, includes pollinators, caterpillars, soil insects, worms, microorganisms, fungi and much more. For this illustrated discussion, meet us in our new garden classroom. And join us each month for a different topic in our Nature Gardening series.
