Belfast Garden Club Evening Lecture Series
January 28 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
Native Ground Covers for Maine with Hildy Ellis, Knox-Lincoln Soil & Water Conservation District
Discover how to boost the biodiversity of your landscape from the ground up by using native groundcovers! Groundcovers are spreading plants that form dense stands, crowd out weeds and hold soil to prevent erosion. Unlike lawn grasses, native groundcovers offer color and texture throughout the year and provide food and habitat for birds, bees, pollinators and other native fauna. Planting native groundcovers won’t take the place of lawn used for recreation but can create a fairly low-maintenance alternative for those “un-used” areas of lawn in your yard.
This program is co-sponsored by the Belfast Free Library and the Belfast Garden Club.
