Upcoming Events, Seminars and Workshops at Buchanan’s
Why and How to Garden for Wildlife in Your Own Backyard
Saturday, September 7th @ 10:00 am – 11:00 am
The average neighborhood yard looks pretty, but doesn’t support the wide range of wildlife that is crucial to a healthy environment and community. The good news is that yards can be both beautiful and beneficial by incorporating the native plants that support our local wildlife! In this presentation, Ms. Lauren Simpson will share a few handy tips on how to create a wildlife garden at your own home, for the enjoyment of your family and the benefit of your community. Come join us to learn how to transform your own yard into a beautiful, wildlife paradise! You can learn more about Ms. Simpson at her Facebook page, St. Julian’s Crossing – wildlife habitat here.
