Pleasing the Pollinators by Kirti Mathura

Saturday, April 14, 2018

By Kirti Mathura, Instructional Specialist for Community Garden Education with the University of Arizona Cooperative Extension. Today, we are well aware of the crisis facing our bee populations. We rely on honeybees for their role in production of many foods we enjoy and depend upon. But, they are not the only pollinators whose populations are threatened. Kirti will speak on numerous native winged creatures that “pollinate the plants that provide brilliant color and fragrance in our gardens.” She will show us how we can invite hummingbirds, butterflies, moths, bees and even bats into our landscape with thoughtful design, habitat requirements and pollinator-specific plants. Kirti worked at the Desert Botanical Garden for over 17 years. Kirti has also written or contributed to landscaping and gardening publications, including Desert Landscaping for Beginners published by Arizona Master Gardener Press For information call 480-488-3686. Come early. Seating is limited.
