Join SPAWN and guest speaker Charlotte Torgovitsky for a free workshop where gardeners of all levels will learn about the insects that make our world go round, and what we can do to help them.

We’ll cover insect and butterfly ecology, how to design a pollinator garden, what native plant habitat looks like, and get our hands dirty building a pollinator garden.
