Establish a wildflower bed with N.C. Cooperative Extension


Habitat loss is the number one factor leading to decreased pollinator populations. As we build more homes, schools, and businesses here in Currituck, we have a responsibility to protect our pollinators. One way to do this is by establishing wildflower beds. Wildflower beds can be small, but offer habitat to pollinators.

Join us at NC Cooperative Extension, Currituck County Center, located at 120 Community Way in Barco on October 25th, from 10:00 am to Noon for our Establishing a Wildflower Bed class.

We’ll start indoors and cover everything you need to know about wildflowers, from how to get them started, to how to keep them maintained and prevent them from looking like a weedy mess!

Then, we’ll head outside to our pollinator plots and participants will help seed one of our pollinator beds. The class fee of $15.00 covers wildflower seeds for you to take home to start your very own bed.
