Goodells County Park

Wednesdays - 10 am - 12 pm

FACEBOOK EVENT PAGE

Ready to learn about native plants or share your own gardening tips and techniques in a hands-on setting? Volunteer with Jeanne Mackay, other Master Gardeners of St. Clair County and St. Clair County Parks on Wednesday mornings from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. this season in the Eco Gardens at Goodells County Park. The many Michigan native and ornamental plant beds at the park are excellent examples of Eco Gardens because they not only look great, they also support pollinators, birds and other wildlife and require little to no watering and no fertilizers. Lend a hand, learn and share as we work to restore and expand gardens and green space enjoyed by thousands of human and wildlife visitors every year.
