Creating a Habitat Garden

Rocky Mountain Gardening Elective

Plants are only part of the joy of creating and tending a garden: observing the insects, birds, and other wildlife that a garden attracts brings a whole new dimension of pleasure and fascination. Lauren will explain the overall concepts and practices that make a garden good habitat for a variety of creatures, and discuss some of the best plants for food, shelter, and material for rearing young. She emphasizes beauty with wildlife function: neither a gorgeous garden full of plants without wildlife value nor a chaotic mishmash of unattractive wildlife plants are going to satisfy, and Lauren wants all to benefit.
