Companion planting is one of the oldest gardening traditions. Learn how different varieties of plants can prevent pest problems, attract beneficial insects, increase crop productivity, and improve crop taste. This workshop will also cover the importance of gardening with native species. Native plants are adapted to New York City's climate and soil conditions. These important plant species provide nectar, pollen, and seeds that serve as food for native butterflies, insects, birds and other animals. 

Please enjoy this practical workshop at any of three Learning Gardens across the city. Materials fee includes seeds, organic soil, and window box. RSVP below.
