#3: Mastering Companion Planting

In the third of a series of five spring Garden Talks, gardening expert Melissa Irwin presents an in-the-garden program to help you choose garden plants that benefit from proximity to others.

Knowing which plants belong close together in the garden can be the difference between failure and sweet success. Learn all you need to know about how to use plants to attract pollinators, deter pests, provide soil nutrients and more! Companion planting allows you to let nature do the work for you!

The Monterey Pass Battlefield Museum will be open especially for attendees of this event.

Melissa Irwin is a naturalist who has experience working with the Audubon Society and Moonfire Orchard. She holds a degree in Environmental Studies and specializes in all things growing in soil!

Participants should wear shoes appropriate for being inside the garden. Seating is not provided, but feel free to bring a chair.
