Grow Your Own Prairie in North Georgia Plants and Pollinators Specialization

October 19, 9:00 am - 1:00 pm

Plants and Pollinators Specialization:Grow your own Prairie in North Georgia

$50 General Admission, $45 Members

Prairies, meadows, savannas and woodlands were once an integral part of Georgia’s Piedmont and mountain ecoregions. These habitats have nearly disappeared, but are now being restored and re-created by gardeners, ecologists and landscapers. This class will teach you the basics of creating a prairie on your property, including site analysis, species selection, and habitat management. Class time will be divided between classroom lecture and a field trip to the prairie at the Botanical Garden. Karin will share her experience cultivating and managing 10 acres of meadow, forest and natural garden in North Georgia, where she encourages wildlife to come and live.
