In partnership with the Hillcrest Community Civic Association and the East Washington Heights Baptist Church, a four hour workshop that includes presentations on gardening with native plants, site selection, garden design and plant selection will be held. The planting of a butterfly garden with native flowers and shrubs will also take place.
Participants will receive live plants, books, literature and a birdhouse kit to help them start their own gardens at home. The workshop will begin at 9:00 am on Saturday June 25 at East Washington Heights Baptist Church (2220 Branch Avenue SE). This workshop is free.
