Did you know that encouraging pollinators year-round in your garden creates a vibrant garden and offers pollinators an essential food source? Take a garden break on Saturday, June 25 from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. and visit the Winters Library Teaching Garden (708 Railroad Ave.) and join the Master Gardeners of Yolo County for a garden tour and talk on Pollinators and their Plants for All Seasons.

The Master Gardeners will be offering cool drinks and gardening advice in addition to a short talk and guided walk that begins at 10:30 a.m. Learn how encouraging pollinators throughout the seasons creates a colorful garden and provides vital food sources for pollinators such as bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds.

Take this opportunity to see pollinator plants in bloom and ask questions about which plants will work best in your garden. This event is one of the last of a series offered by Yolo County Library and the Master Gardeners of Yolo County as part of a grant provided by HHMI Tangled Bank Studios and PBS Nature.

For further information about upcoming events contact the UCCE Master Gardeners of Yolo County at yolomg.ucanr.edu.
