Going Native without
Thursday, Jun. 2, 7:00 PM
Going Native without feeding Bambi - presented by Lourdes Osorio
Gardeners are increasingly becoming aware of their role in creating gardens that are beautiful AND provide habitat for butterflies, bees and other pollinators. This is best accomplished by using native plants, an extremely challenging task throughout much of New Jersey as native plants are deer favorites. Lourdes will share her own experience in creating an eco-friendly native plant sanctuary for pollinators in a location with heavy deer pressure. This lecture discusses deer-resistant native plants, their growing requirements and their value to pollinators. It will help you save time and money on plant selection as you create your own paradise.

A passionate gardener for over 25 years, Lourdes enjoys gardening not only for beauty but to provide an eco-friendly sanctuary for butterflies, pollinators and birds. She is the creator of Native Plant Channel on YouTube and Facebook, an educational channel that produces videos that help gardeners grow native plants, discussing their characteristics, growing requirements and offering virtual tours of public and private native plant gardens. Lourdes is a Master Gardener, a member of the Board of Directors and curator of the native plant garden at Laurelwood Arboretum in Wayne, NJ.

This will be an in-person lecture on Thursday, June 2 at 7:00 on the Adult Side of the Library. Please register for the event at http://engagedpatrons.org/EventsExtended.cfm?SiteID=5902&EventID=463249&PK=
