Roger’s Gardens presents Nature Gardening Series on August 17

Come discover the importance of a nature garden at Roger’s Gardens’ “Nature Gardening Series – Birds, Butterflies, Bees, Pollinators and Much More with Ron Vanderhoff,” on Saturday, Aug. 17 from 9-10 a.m.

A nature garden is more than just birds and the butterflies, it supports an entire web of life and, if executed correctly, can turn a pretty garden into a living, thriving, alive space, filled with diversity and excitement throughout the year.

Ron Vanderhoff, Rogers Gardens’ resident naturalist, horticulturist and ecologist will show photographs and discuss some of the rest of the insects and animals that are part of a fully functioning nature of habitat garden. Attendees will learn about how certain plants support specific insects and how those insects, in turn, support many of the birds, reptiles and small mammals that visit healthy habitat gardens.

This food web in a garden, when properly functioning, includes pollinators, caterpillars, soil insects, worms, microorganisms, fungi and much more.

Roger’s Gardens is located at 2301 San Joaquin Hills Road, Corona del Mar. For this illustrated discussion, meet in Rogers’ Gardens’ new garden classroom.
