Online gardening program, Going Native, via Zoom presented by Sue Reinardy and UW Extension from 10:30 am—Noon. 

Going Native –

On April 23 – 10:30 am to Noon, the Sherman & Ruth Weiss Community Library-Hayward in partnership with the UW-Extension Master Gardener Volunteer program is providing an online gardening program via Zoom, as part of National Library Week, "Find your Library at your place". This program will cover what, when and where to cultivate native plants that provide food for butterflies, song birds, hummingbirds and beneficial insects.  Also learn about phenology: the study of the development of plants and animals as affected by our climate and weather.  By using your observations you can know the best time for planting, the blooming cycles of plants, and the emergence of insect pests.  All will help you become a more natural gardener.  The presenter will be Sue Reinardy- UW-Extension Master Gardener Volunteer. 

Register in advance for this meeting: https://uwextension.zoom.us/meeting/register/tJcvcO-hrTouG9YSWNKCXExwjkDrGV5XA-q4  in order to receive handout materials, the Zoom link and password.
