Honeybees and More: Attracting Northwest Pollinators to Your Garden

Apr. 8, 6:30 - 8:30 p.m.

Bothell Operations Center
Often people think only of honey bees when you say “pollinator.” Come learn about more of the common pollinators we have in the Pacific Northwest and why they are so important to have around. Many pollinators require special plants and habitat to keep them happy the healthy. We will talk about companion planting and choosing the right plants to create a pollinator garden, and we’ll show you how to manage garden problems without pesticides in order to protect them. 
This is an indoor lecture-based workshop.

Apr. 15, 6:30 - 8:30 p.m.

The basis for healthy gardens and lawns is healthy soil. Come learn what healthy soil looks like, how it affects plant growth, and how to build healthy soil. Weeds can be an indicator of what’s going on underground. We will look at different types of weeds, what they tell you about your soil, and how to control them naturally – without chemicals. We’ll also show you a demonstration of an easy composting system you can do at home to add compost to your soil.
