    Fundraiser #2

    Naturescaping Workshop Will Benefit Birds, Bees and Local Village

    If you are interested in creating your own backyard wildlife habitat, an upcoming naturescaping workshop, hosted by North Star Village, will provide the know-how to confidently move forward.

    “Naturescaping – It’s for the Birds and Bees” will be held Sunday, May 31, 1:00 – 4:30 pm at the BES Water Control Lab, 6543 N. Burlington Ave.  The gardening workshop will cost $15 - $30 on a sliding scale basis.  All workshop proceeds will benefit the North Star Village start-up fund.  To ensure that enough materials are available, RSVP at www.NorthStarVillagePDX.org or call 503.978.0540.

    Naturescaping is the art of garden design with native plants to provide food and shelter for birds, bees and other beneficial insects.  The workshop will focus on native plants and non-invasive adaptive plants and how to transform your garden into a restful retreat that mimics Mother Nature.  You will come away knowing how to create a beautiful, unique and healthy outdoor environment for wildlife, pets and your family

    NatureSheds NorthWest instructor, Patt Opdyke, has shared naturescaping principles and her love of native plants for more than 20 years.
