What to Bring: Gardening clothes and favorite small garden tools for planting if you have it, but not needed as Tom has supplies handy.
Come and join us at our community gardens at Valleywood Park this Saturday! We will be planting California Fuschias for hummingbirds! This bright red flower grows well in our neighborhood. Lahontan Audubon Society's Vice President and owner of River School Farm, Tom Stille, is leading this effort and knows all when it comes to landscaping and gardening in our area. This planting effort is the first step to adding flowers to our hummingbird garden and there will be more opportunities to help out. This day, we will build a raised bed out of tree limbs, add live worm compost, plant, add drip irrigation, and mulch for the flowers. Learn techniques you can use in your own yard and help our wild birds thrive! Help us plant and then watch our gardens grow!
