In conjunction with the Benzie Conservation District’s Spring Seedling Sale, this workshop will provide information on spring planting for bare-root seedlings. The event will include learning how to select the right native species for specific goals, how to maximize planting success with proper site selection and preparation, planting techniques, and follow-up protection and care.
District Forester, Kama Ross, will be joined by local experts Linda Thomasma, Wildlife Biologist and owner of Two by Two Wildlife Consulting; and Carolyn Thayer, Landscape Designer, and owner of Designs in Bloom. This presentation is packed with information for a wide variety of planting scenarios, bring your questions and plan your garden plots! The Benzie Conservation District asks that people pre-register by contacting Aimé Merizon, Outreach Coordinator, 231-882-4391 x 11, or firstname.lastname@example.org. This is a free event, however, donations are appreciated.
