Many pollinator species have suffered serious declines in recent years. It’s a serious problem for all of us since pollinators are responsible for the pollination of 80% of all flowering plants, and at least 30% of the food that we eat. Unfortunately, most of our landscapes offer little in the way of appropriate habitat and forage. With simple strategies, you can attract and support not just bees, but an array of pollinators that have different requirements. Learn how to create a Pollinator Victory Garden to help win the war on pollinator decline.

Recognized as one of the world’s ten best gardens, Innisfree is a powerful icon of mid-twentieth century design. Join Innisfree Landscape Curator Kate Kerin as she tells the story of this unique landscape, which has been compared to the Great American novel – love, wealth, loss, perseverance, innovation and quiet triumph. At its core, Innisfree is about the individual’s experience in nature. Inviting exploration and even contemplation, Collins’ sweeping landscape merges the essence of Modernist and Romantic ideas with traditional Chinese and Japanese garden design principles in a form that evolved through subtle handling of the site and slow manipulation of its ecology. The result is a distinctly American stroll garden — a sublime composition of rock, water, wood, and sky achieved with remarkable economy and grace.

Join us for some FREE plant-lovin’ fun at our annual Plant Swap, hosted by SUNY Orange Sustainability. Plant drop-off and sorting 9am-10am; swapping begins at 10am. Rain or Shine. All are welcome - bring a friend, but not your pet.

What’s a Plant Swap? Plant swaps are a fun way to get rid of any extra plants you may have (perennial divisions, seedlings, pack annuals, unwanted houseplants) in exchange for new plants by trading with other gardeners.

Tips for first time swappers:
- No invasives
- Plants should be in a container
- Label plants as well as possible (Annual/perennial, size, sun/shade, bloom color, etc)
- Bring flats or trays to bring your new plants home in
- Plants should be well watered, pest and disease free
- Dig plants a few days in advance so they can recover, and water well

Swap will be held on the South Street Lawn at the SUNY Orange Middletown Campus. Enter on South Street between Bio Tech Building and Morrison Hall (Mansion).

Fee: Free
