General Meeting – in person

September 17 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Designing and Maintaining a Butterfly Garden by Paula Diaz, the Gardening Nerd. A well-designed butterfly garden considers the needs of not only our lepidopteran friends, but also its caretaker and its neighbors whether in an urban, suburban or rural setting. This includes planning for maintenance over the years as the garden matures. In keeping with the current “Leave the Leaves” movement, a balance between minimal maintenance and neighborhood aesthetics will be described. Photographs of Paula’s client butterfly gardens at various stages of maturity will be presented. Paula Diaz is the principal of GardeNerd Consultations, providing education on incorporating native flora into traditional home and business landscapes. She volunteers with MU Extension Master Gardeners, GrowNative! and Deep Roots KC and is a member of the Missouri Prairie Foundation and the Missouri Native Plant Society.

**Due to the close quarters at this venue, we STRONGLY ADVISE that ALL attendees wear masks to the September meeting. Disposable masks will be available on request.

**For increased safety, we will not offer our usual refreshments. Please DO NOT bring food to share, but feel free to bring your own personal beverages and/or snacks.

**These policies will be reevaluated for the November meeting, depending on community levels of Covid transmission and other factors. Please watch for further updates, and be advised that our meetings will probably move to a new (hopefully roomier) Johnson County location in Spring 2023.
