Planning and Growing a Garden for Biodiversity  

This is an interactive lecture course presented from an artistic and amateur scientific point of view and is designed to appeal to all levels of butterfly, pollinator, gardening, and wildlife enthusiasts. The course is based on the premise that great beauty can be achieved while simultaneously increasing biodiversity and using native plants. Students will be presented with tools and steps to understand the underlying principles needed to create multiseasonal butterfly and pollinator habitat. Students should be able to qualify for certification as a monarch butterfly waystation or a pollinator-friendly site. Discussion will include habitat, elements of healthy soil, basic design, growing from seed, and sustained bloom. Students are offered the option to create their own garden design in an interactive exercise. No textbook is required. Students need not have a large garden to participate. Activities outside the classroom are optional. Distance learning methods/tools to be used • Zoom videoconferencing • Blogs
