The Frontier Extension District and Anderson County Conservation District will host a public meeting, “Starting a Pollinator Garden”, at 6 p.m. Thursday, March 14, 2019, at the community building in Garnett, Kan.

Bret Laprarie, territory sales agronomist for Sharp Brothers Seed Company, will talk about establishing a pollinator garden. He will discuss plant species that should be considered, and how to maintain a garden for our pollinator friends.

To cap the evening off, John Conway, resource conservationist with the Kansas Association of Conservation Districts, will visit with the group about monarch butterflies and how to build a habitat to help them survive their trip south.

This meeting is packed full of information to consume and to take home. Anyone interested in learning more about these topics should attend. The Anderson County Conservation District and the Frontier Extension District will provide some light refreshments for the evening.
