    Roycroft Power House, 39 S Grove St., East Aurora, NY 14052
    “I’m For The Birds”
    This will cover the importance of birds, why you should feed birds, appropriate food for birds, making your yard bird-friendly, types of feeders and nesting boxes, and bird identification. It will take place at the Power House on the Roycroft Campus, 39 South Grove Street, East Aurora, NY 14052.

    “Heirloom Gardening”
    The gardens of our parents and grandparents were filled with pass-along plants like peonies, lilac, and iris. Heirloom varieties of flowers and vegetables have a long history and have been handed down through the generations. They help connect us to our cultural past by preserving the traditions, flavors, and fragrances of long ago.

    Saturday, September 30 10 – 11:30 AM
    Parkside Lodge, 84 Parkside Avenue, Buffalo, NY
    “Shrinking Your Lawn, Benefits and Strategies”
