Event Information:

Join us for Part 2 of this collaborative event to hear presentations on pollinator conservation, native plants, streamside forest restoration, and more! In addition, attendees have the opportunity to learn how to plant a tree and get their hands dirty by helping us plant hundreds of trees along a stream running next to Herbal Springs Farmstead. For those who are not interested in planting trees, Herbal Springs Farmstead will be holding an exclusive “Open House” for workshop attendees to explore the nursery, purchase native plants, or build their own pollinator container garden.
