Keep the Animals Out! | Virtual class

June 26, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am

Keeping out critters is often one of the biggest challenges that a gardener can face. To local wildlife, our gardens are delicious: they’re fertilized, irrigated, and full of tasty exotic plants! From deer and rabbits to even cats and dogs, it’s no wonder that animals of all kinds take delight in eating our hard work.

In this virtual class, author and horticulturist Brie Arthur will share her practical approach to dealing with unwanted animals in your garden. She will cover the best repellents and inexpensive fencing solutions, a few favorite plants that can help deter certain critters, and which gardening practices you should avoid to keep the animals away! Brie aims to make you laugh as you learn her easy-to-apply strategies and have all your questions answered in this engaging and interactive session.
