Parkway Garden Club to host landscaping workshop

Parkway Garden Club will host a free community presentation, “Landscaping for Beauty, Wildlife and a Healthy Community,” Wednesday, March 4, at 6:30 p.m. at Villa Park Recreation Center, 2055 Cohansey Blvd., Roseville.

Biologist Erica Tenbroek will discuss natural gardening that promotes a healthy ecosystem and will attract birds, butterflies and beneficial insects. Learn how to identify the problem plants in the area and native plants that have high wildlife value. Also, get tips on which plants are avoided by deer and other critters. Tenbroek has volunteered in native planting at parks and for wildlife rehabilitation for more than 30 years.

She is a member of the Woman’s Woodland Network and a volunteer for Ramsey County Cooperative Weed Management Area Invasive Weed Patrol. For more information, call 651- 353-4284.
