Primo Plantings for Potent Pollinators with Robin

Buffy Plante from California - 06/04/2020 17:27:43

This was a great talk! Robin provided a lot of detailed information on pollinators as well the various types of flowers and plants that pollinators need. She included numerous beautiful photos and useful handouts. I’m definitely going to try some of her tips to encourage pollinators in my neighborhood.

Thank you, Robin, for sharing your experience of Paris! You introduced parts of the city, as well as outskirts, that I would never thought of visiting. The gardens you chose were beautiful and I really appreciated the history and tidbits about the areas.,,the restroom tips were awesome! You kept me pleasantly engaged through the entire presentation and can't wait until I visit Paris again. Each location will be included in my trip! What city is next cuz I'm signing up!

Robin provided a beautiful garden tour. Her detailed descriptions included plant information as well as historical information. It was like traveling to Paris without leaving my couch.
