Lunch & Learn: Bog Gardening
Thursday May 8th, 11:00 – 1:00
Ashantilly Center, Darien, GA
Come out to hear Martha Joiner teach us how to create a bog garden in your backyard habitat. You will also walk away with a dish bog garden for you to cultivate!

A bog is a wetland that accumulates peat, a deposit of dead plant material. Other names for bogs include mire, quagmire and muskeg. Bogs occur where the water at the ground surface is acidic and low in nutrients. In general the low fertility and cool climate results in relatively slow plant growth, but decay is even slower owing to the saturated soil. Bogs have distinctive assemblages of plant and animal species and are of high importance for biodiversity.
