Two native plant gardening events this week

One week- two native plant gardening events!

Tuesday, March 13, Helena at the Lewis and Clark Library, 7 pm

Join me as I present a program to the Native Plant Society titled: "Conservation Gardening with Montana Native Plants for Montana Native Wildlife." 

Learn how to have a sustainable, less resource intensive native plant garden that is comfortable for people and inviting to a variety of wildlife. David will discuss plants, insects, birds and garden design that is fun, easy, and inexpensive. Gardening with Montana native plants is rewarding and within everyone's reach. David will present examples from his home garden that is in a small city lot in the middle of Missoula, receives no irrigation, contains over 100 species of native plants and has attracted over 60 species of birds, and countless insects.
Admission:  Free and open to the public.

Thursday, March 15, Missoula, Fort Missoula, 5:30- 7:30 pm
"Starting your native plants from seed"
Join my favorite botanist, Marilyn Marler, at the the Fort Missoula Native Plant Gardens, near the big silver water tower, for an evenng of native plant seed startng

Here is a description:
Establish your native plant garden by starting seeds early in the season. Marilyn Marler will provide all the tricks and tips you need to get your garden up and running as soon as the weather permits. This workshop will feature information, hands-on practice and tour of the garden to assist with your landscaping questions and spark ideas for your own garden.
