Layers of ice and mounds of snow did not dampen the enthusiasm of the Tweed and District Horticultural Society members as they welcomed Maya Navrot as their guest speaker for the March meeting. Maya is the Education and   Stewardship Coordinator for Quinte Conservation.

Through her photo presentation, Maya illustrated how yards, garden spaces and even patio containers can be established to help pollinators. A number of different gardens were presented from butterfly planters to naturalized wildflower meadows.

Maya shared ideas about planning a pollinator friendly garden as well as native wildflowers and shrubs that could be incorporated into these gardens. She discussed the importance of pollinators in our environment and in our daily lives.
