You don’t need acres for an eco-friendly garden. From Sustainability Matters’ Sari Carp, learn how to grow pollinator-friendly native plants in small spaces: micromeadows, potted perennials, small-scale native trees and bushes, and vertical vines. Even a postage stamp or deck can become a pollinator oasis, where you and your family can enjoy watching wildlife all year round. We’ll cover site preparation, choosing the right plants for your space and growing conditions, and even no-mow lawns (though they’re not totally native…).

Also, don’t miss the second in the Greener than Grass (Small Spaces) series, Edible Landscaping in Small Spaces!

The Greener than Grass (Small Spaces) series is a public education initiative connected to Sustainability Matters’ Making Trash Bloom project in Fairfax County (VA), a demonstration native meadow at the I-66 landfill, and is funded by the Community Foundation for Northern Virginia. Read more about the Fairfax Making Trash Bloom site here or check out a video of the Making Trash Bloom project’s early impact.

This will be a virtual workshop, with time for Q & A. It’s free, but space is limited, and registration is required.

Upon registering, you will be emailed a link to the online event page, through which you can access the Zoom webinar once the event starts. Please make sure you receive the link, and contact us if you have any questions.
