Pocket Meadow and Monarch Waystation Tour with Emily Sampson of PatchWork Meadows
June 26, 2021 @ 12:00PM — 1:00PM Eastern Time (US & Canada)
Emily Sampson will lead the group on a tour of the beautiful 600 square foot pocket meadow on the steep bank at Lake Tomahawk in Black Mountain. The meadow, created in the fall of 2019, is a Monarch Waystation and exemplifies the vast benefits that even a small planting space can provide. In its second full year, it's proving to be easy to maintain while providing a diverse habitat for pollinators. Emily will discuss converting portions of lawns into functional pollinator meadows, methods and techniques that she has implemented, and will touch on slope erosion control using native pollinator plants.
PatchWork Meadows is a Green business, growing and installing native plants for pollinator habitat. Their goal is to convert sections of residential and commercial lawn into beautiful wildflower meadow patches that benefit bees, butterflies, birds and other wildlife.
