Rain Underground is hosting a Pollinator Planter Workshop:
Saturday, June 28, 2014
7 - 9 pm
Near Hampden in Baltimore, MD
For Adults--Drinks and Appetizers will be served
Pollinators have been getting more attention and rightly so. Here at Rain Underground, we've been thinking about planting design for pollinators. Not everyone has the space for a garden of native perennials, but we want to do what we can to help create lots of "flower pot stops" for these important members of our environment. Enter a pollinator planter workshop! Butterflies, bees and other pollinators will love the pot you plant up at this one of kind workshop (how can it be 'work' when drinks, flowers, laughing and learning are involved?) Please forward the invitation to those who may be interested.

The evening gives participants a chance to see a residential rain garden planted with native plants, while creating a pollinator haven in a pot (medium or large). We provide pots, plants, potting soil, gardening gloves, tools, and an experienced plants-woman to lead the workshop. The workshop takes place in Baltimore near Hampden. Address is provided to participants.
The cost to participants is $40.00 for the medium planter (approx. 12x14x12) and $75.00 for the large planter (approx. 18x20x18). Participants will leave with the potted up planter, instructions for care and more info about pollinators.
Email email@example.com to register for the workshop. Please specify size of pot and include your name and phone number.
Come join us and we will all plant happy together!
