MMGs Emma Chow and MJ Kucerak led the instruction with presentations on different kinds of pollinators and the plants that attract beneficial insects and pollinators to our gardens. As well, integrated pest management techniques were reviewed. Participants built and took home an insect hotel.
Particpants learned how to grow flowers and vegetables from seed and planted a flat of seeds to take home.
