Containers for Pollinators or Mosquito Repellent

  • Thursday, June 8, 2023, 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM

One out of every three bites of your food depends on a pollinator. So rolling out the welcome mat and ringing the dinner bell for pollinators by planting varieties they'll love is smart. Do you want to support bees, hummingbirds, and butterflies but don't have space for a full garden? Join Victoria Barnsbee and Vicki Jennejohn, Master Gardener volunteers who will lead this workshop to build a container garden filled with pollinator- friendly or mosquito repellent plants. Many people who are searching for more natural mosquito remedies and don't have allergies, believe these plants make a noticeable difference and they'll leave you smelling good. What's not to like about this? You will choose from a selection of annuals, perennials, and herbs of different heights and habits so that the flower's bloom will extend throughout the season. All supplies will be provided. you can make two containers. Fee: $15/project. To register: send your payment and information including your choice of project(s) to CCE Ontario, Attn: Container Garden, 480 N. Main St., Canandaigua, NY 14424.
