Plant a Backyard Prairie (online) with Cindy Crosby

June 9, 2021 @ 11:00 am12:30 pm

Bring the prairie to your doorstep! Turn a corner of your home landscape into a pocket-size prairie. If you think prairie plants are too wild for a home garden, think again! You can create a beautiful planted area that welcomes pollinators and wildlife without raising your neighbors’ eyebrows. In this online class, you will learn:

  • how to select the right spot for your home prairie;
  • which plants to select and their many benefits, for wildlife, and for you;
  • creative ways to group plants for a pleasing look, and
  • how to care for your prairie.

Plus, you’ll get loads of inspiration from beautiful photos and stories that will bring your backyard prairie to life before you even put a single plant in the ground.
