Do you know the best ways to support a range pollinators in our area and why?  

Keep checking this site for more information! Dr. Alicia Hulse would have discussed the Conservation Board’s project to increase public awareness of the need to provide habitat for our native pollinators. Information will be available about the groups of native pollinators that need our help and identify the kinds of native plants that are most needed to support them. 

Alicia has provided an overview of the project plans, including participation by the Garden Club (see below). For more information from the Town of Weaverville on this project, anyone may sign up for the new e-newsletterhttp://www.weavervillenc.org/  in Quick Links on the right.

November 10:  Growing Natives in a Parking Lot?

Mary Hugenschmidt, a long time Master Gardener with a special interest in group-shared gardening, will bring us the list of native plants she has selected for our downtown parking bed renovation.  This workshop of sorts will permit us to work with her on planning a lovely four-seasons new bed, full of drought-tolerant and pollinator-friendly plants.
