Gardening for SF’s Butterflies & Pollinators

August 22, 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

| Free
Speaker: Susan Karasoff
Zoom reservations required
San Francisco is home to many butterfly species, many native bee species and hummingbirds that pollinate our fruits, vegetables and flowers. Butterfly babies (caterpillars) evolved with and depend on eating local San Francisco native plants.  Local San Francisco native plants evolved to adapt to our local soils and climate. We’ll discuss what to plant in clay and sandy areas of San Francisco so that you can grow your own pollinator garden buffet, including shallow rooted plants that thrive in pots.
Susan Karasoff gardens in San Francisco’s clay soil. Susan is a member of the California Native Plant Society – Yerba Buena chapter. Susan brings an aerospace systems engineering approach to build resilient local ecosystems and an “only the easiest plants survive” approach to gardening. Susan grows a buffet of native edible and pollinator plants.
