Public Welcome Chapter Meeting Program/Speaker Presentation Hands-On/How-To Workshop

Ron Bowen, founder of Prairie Restorations in Princeton,  will be coming to talk to Wild Ones and others at Bethlehem Lutheran in St. Cloud on Saturday, March 9 at 9 am.  We’ll likely be doing some seed starting after that.  The day should go until about noon.  More info on this event will be available later, but for right now, please mark your calendars.  You can certainly bring your own seed to start, but if you want to just participate and learn what may be a new seed starting technique (outdoor sowing in milk jugs) please do so. Seed will be available.  Bethlehem will gladly take the seeds you start for their restoration work.  We will provide most supplies, but if you can start saving one gallon opaque plastic milk jugs and bring them, that would be great.

Native Plant Primer + Habitat Gardening Basics
Speaker: Andy Scott, ReWild Gardens, LLC | www.rewildgardens.com

So you've decided to jump into natural gardening but not sure where to start? Andy will cover native garden basics including site preparation, plant selection, planning basics and long term care to help your project succeed. He'll also highlight unique, under-utilized native species and landscape techniques that can help your garden setting become balanced and resilient.
 
About the Speaker:
In 2017, Andy shifted career focus to pursue his passion for nature and gardening to start his small native landscape and design business. Located in Bloomington, he utilized his own property to better understand how native plants respond to an urban garden setting and developed a natural approach to convert lawn and wasted space to wildlife-friendly gardens. These spaces support beneficial insects, birds and other wildlife while also creating healthy soil and conserving water. Education driven, Andy likes to involve his clients in all aspects of the process and helps provide resources to learn about and demystify the plant/pollinator relationships that their landscape will be fostering.
 
ReWild Gardens creates natural spaces that beautify the landscape while also supporting a myriad of important native pollinator and bird species. Gardens that utilize native plants (and wildlife-friendly practices) not only provide nectar and pollen but also act as hosts for butterflies and bees - giving them support for their entire life cycle. ReWild provides planning, installation and maintenance services for new and established wildlife-friendly natural plantings in the metro area.
