Design A Nature-Friendly Garden!
Monthly meet-ups at Marsin with Master Gardener Maria Janowiak  
Join us at upcoming nature-friendly garden events!

Gardens can enhance the beauty of your yard while also encouraging all sorts of wildlife. Birds, butterflies, bees, and many other animals can use gardens for food and shelter. If you'd like to learn more about nature-friendly gardening, come out the the Marsin Nature Retreat for an upcoming session about garden planning on Sunday, July 30th. Volunteers from the Master Gardener program will give a presentation on how to assess a site and begin planning a new garden, as well as describe new landscaping efforts that are starting up at the Marsin Nature Retreat. This informative session will be followed up by hands-on learning during a short work bee to break ground on a new demonstration garden. New and experienced gardeners welcome.

Sunday, July 30th at 2-5 pm (Presentations at 2-4 pm, Hands-on experience 4-5 pm)
Bring gloves, long pants, and sturdy shoes. Tools will be provided.

Stay tuned for details about future workshops on August 20th, September 17th, and October 15th.
