Evening in the Garden – July 27
Plan to attend this family event at the Van Hoosen Farm Children’s Garden and Calf Barn on Wednesday, July 27 beginning at 6:30 pm.
The first 25 attendees (1 per family) to arrive will receive a free milkweed plant to help entice butterflies to their garden.
6:30 pm – Stroll through the Children’s Garden and enjoy refreshments.
7:00 pm – Elly Maxwell, entomologist at Dow Gardens in Midland, Mi will present her program, Gardening for Pollinators in the Calf Barn.
Insects are a diverse group that play a large role in our ecosystem — most importantly as pollinators. Learn to appreciate all the work insects, primarily bees, do for our garden. Elly will focus on the components necessary in a backyard garden to encourage these beneficial insects.
And there’s more……
Members of the Rochester Garden Club will be selling hand crafted garden art, garden gloves, and native plants for your garden.
The Evening is presented by the Rochester Garden Club and the Museum at Van Hoosen Farm. There is no charge.
