WLS 2022: Creating a Pollinator Paradise with Native Perennials (Feb. 6)
Looking forward to welcoming the migratory birds and butterflies that will be returning to Pennsylvania in early spring? Join Heather Andrews, The Thoughtful Gardener, as she shares practical tips guided by the latest scientific research to help you create a pollinator paradise in your own backyard.
Heather Andrews is an author, photographer, traveler and speaker who works with homeowners and businesses to create sustainable native pollinator habitats. She grew up as one of 12 grandchildren in North Carolina, and often took walks in her Granddaddy Andrews’ garden, where she learned about pollinators and increasing yield. During the growing season, you will find her in her monarch waystation, Cat-a-pillar Haven, video blogging on her new YouTube Channel, Garden Thoughtfully. She routinely creates actionable video content to enable gardeners to create a pollinator paradise in their own backyards. Andrews is a two-time recipient of the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society’s “Garden of Distinction” Award by the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society for her monarch waystation and for a pollinator garden she designed for the historic Craighead House in conjunction with the Master Gardeners of Central PA. Her award-winning photographs and articles have been featured in magazines and on the online publishing platform Medium.com. Her proposal “The resurgence of pollinator hedgerows—using science to create a pollinator oasis in your own backyard,” was accepted at the 2021 International Master Gardeners Conference.
