Planting for Pollinators

The Greenville Conservation Commission and Chamberlain Free Public Library are pleased to offer Planting for Pollinators presented by the UNH Extension Master Gardeners on Tuesday, May 9th at 7:00 p.m.

Insects such as bees and butterflies are helpful, and in some cases, essential, in pollinating many of our food crops such as apples, berries, and vegetables. In recent years, there has been a decline in the populations of these wild pollinators. Planting patches of flowers, wildflowers, grasses, shrubs, and flowering trees can encourage and support natural pollinators as well as enhance backyard landscapes. Master Gardener Ruth Droescher will present and offer recommendations on plants beneficial to pollinators.

The program is free and open to the public. The library gratefully acknowledges the Rockingham County Master Gardener Program and UNH Extension Service for sponsoring this program.

The Chamberlain Free Public Library is located at 46 Main St., Greenville, NH. For further information, call the Library at 878-1105.
