Surprises that Await us in our Native Pocket Gardens

Tom Dickhudt
Sunrise Native Plant Nursery

Dr. Tom Dickhudt founded and ran the Sunrise Native Plant Nursery in St Croix, MN for nearly two decades.  In January as our hearts are yearning for the greening of Spring, Tom will inspire us with his beautiful photography as he documents the wonderful surprises he has discovered in his native plantings.  These surprises will include wildlife critters, native plants you can eat and interesting ways of seeing the native plants we love.

Tom will share strategies for developing a pollinator habitat.  Each of us will take home a colorful “Native Pocket” guide suitable for the conditions in our yard.



We will be holding our 2nd 
NATIVE SEED EXCHANGE 
at our January meeting!

Don't forget to bring any native plant seeds you would like to share!  Please label with both the botanical name and common name (example: Asclepias tuberosa, Butterfly-weed) for each species, as well as seed source. Envelopes will be available for sharing.
