Please join the Barrington Public Library and the Barrington Land Conservation Trust for the discussion: Choosing Pollinator Plants for Your Landscape. The event will offer a compassionate approach to our relationship with the landscape. As we manipulate our suburban environment it is within our power to evoke positive change by planting thoughtfully and with purpose of place. We will specifically address pollinator plants in the landscape, their necessity, and the hows and whys of what works for both you and the increasingly fragile ecosystems that we steward.

Speakers include:
Blakley Szosz, former president of Barrington Garden Club, current president of RI Federation of Garden Clubs, and head gardener at RI Country Club for 13 years.

Liying Peng, beekeeper and scientist, is a medical school graduate and native of China. She started beekeeping in 2014 raising queens and currently has about 50 hives and harvested 700 pounds of honey. Liying is a member of RI Beekeeper Association and was recently featured in the October 2016 American Bee Journal.

Free and open to all.
