Pollinator Gardening – part of Growing Literacy – Winter Gardening Lectures 2021
Dev Culver, Common Good Garden Coordinator, TSCG
Join Dev, Common Good Garden Coordinator for BTLT, to learn about the lesser known pollinators, such as moths, the importance of pollinator gardens, what plants attract pollinators and how to manage pollinator gardens to do the least harm to the pollinators themselves.
Dev grew up in Lincoln, MA.
In the 1960s and 1970s, it was one of the early communities in the U.S. to prioritize land conservation for enhanced public access and to encourage community gardening and community supported agriculture. Dev’s family was deeply involved in these initiatives. This, coupled with Dev’s lifelong passion for vegetable gardening, led Dev to volunteering to help support the work of the Thomas Settlemire Community Garden’s (TSCG) Common Good Garden (CGG). In 2020 Dev took over leadership of the CGG as a volunteer, nearly doubling the size of the garden, creating a student internship program, and increasing the pollinator gardens.
