We are excited to announce that Amy Pulley of Wing and a Prayer Nursery in Cummington will speak at 1pm to kick off the sixth annual Hilltown Seed Exchange on Saturday, November 18th, 1-4pm at the Cummington Community House!
For the last several years, Amy has been experimenting with growing native perennial plants from seed. She also became highly concerned about the declining populations of some of our native bee and butterfly species, and has created a local nursery focused on plants that serve the needs of native pollinators by providing nectar, pollen and larval forage. She is actively working to restore pollinator habitats throughout the area and educate gardeners, children and families about how to support pollinators by planting pollinator plants in their yards and public spaces.
Join us for this wonderful, informative, and important talk before sharing and swapping and seeds with your neighbors at this year’s fall seed exchange. See you there!
