Pollinator Garden Tour planned for June
The third annual Pollinator Garden Tour, hosted by the Lower Shore Land Trust, will be held on June 23-24 at eight private gardens in Wicomico County.
Attendees will have the opportunity to tour the properties and the pollinator gardens and meadows and learn how these homeowners are helping combat pollinator decline while beautifying their yards with native plants.
This annual event is held by the Lower Shore Land Trust in support of its mission to aid in protecting and decreasing the loss of crucial habitat for pollinators across our region, while providing the members of the community the opportunity to learn simple ways to make a big impact, even in their own back yards.
The tours are Friday and Saturday, June 23-24, from 8 a.m. to 4 pm, one or both days.
This year’s tour gardens range from an Urban Forest Garden, a Mount Hermon Farm Garden, a converted lawn, a meadow garden, to two Salisbury gardens opposite each other that provide a “street crossing” for pollinators, a garden and a chicken paradise, all providing a community for pollinators.
As a visitor to these private pollinator paradises, attendees can participate in mini-workshops covering such topics as rain barrel installation, soil health and testing for the homeowner, spotting and handling invasive species, bird watching and more.
