“Living Classroom Series”, the Rivertowns Pollinator Pathway Project is presenting “The Native Garden in Autumn”
As the next event in our “Living Classroom Series”, the Rivertowns Pollinator Pathway Project is presenting “The Native Garden in Autumn”, a talk about how to manage native plant gardens in the fall. On Thursday, October 29, 2020, at 7:30 p.m., Jacqui Bergonzi will do a ZOOM presentation about (i) how and what to do plant in the later fall before the ground freezes so that the seeds can germinate (or the native plant can properly root) for the Spring and (ii) strategies for leaving one’s garden “messy” – by leaving the leaves and plant stems – so as to provide a proper over-winter habitat for pollinators. (We are starting this presentation at 7:30 p.m., rather than our usual 7:00 p.m., so that everyone can take advantage of early voting that day if they want to. Make Sure to Vote!)
Jacqui Bergonzi is a CCE Master Gardener Volunteer with a Horticulture Certificate from New York Botanical Gardens. Jacqui enjoys encouraging gardeners to experience the benefits of the farm-to-table revolution in their backyards. As a strong proponent of native plants in the landscape, she serves on the Steering Committee of the Native Plant Center in Valhalla and she is on the board of the 9th District Federated Garden Clubs of NYS.
