LIFE IN THE MOUNTAINS
Join us for our winter class series with Steve Pettis, Henderson County Commercial and Consumer Horticulture Agent, host of the Gardening in the Mountains radio show, and your guide to the plants of our unique mountain landscape. Friends of Bullington take 25% off the regular course fee!
In this class Steve will introduce you to the many short-lived springtime flowers as well as several mosses and ferns that grow in the forests of Western North Carolina. He will discuss the plants’ biology, their pollinators, and some of the interesting history of these special plants.
Scientists estimate that one out of three bites of food people eat exists because of pollinators. Many pollinator populations are declining due to habitat loss and other contaminants. Learn what you can do in your garden to protect the pollinators and help them thrive. Led by the Greater Greenville Master Gardeners. Registration required.
