Native Plant Botanical Garden Tour at Troon Vineyard June 5th, 2022
Native Plant & Pollinator Botanical Garden Tour
Sunday June 5, 2022
Troon Vineyard is increasing biodiversity on the farm!
Come learn about native plant ecology, native plant propagation and gardening at the Troon Vineyard Native Plant Botanical Garden tour! Donations for the tour, taken on site, will benefit Pollinator Project Rogue Valley and the Siskiyou Chapter Native Plant Society of Oregon.
In December 2020 Klamath-Siskiyou Native Seeds installed a half-acre native plant and pollinator botanical garden at Troon Vineyard in the Applegate Valley. To date, 94 species of native plants have been established in the garden, primarily from direct seeding, with some native planting from nursery plants.
With paths and plant signs to guide you through the botanical garden, and views out towards the Applegate foothills and Grayback Mountain, the Troon Native Plant Botanical Garden provides an easy and delightful place to learn about native plants, pollinators, and a demonstration about how to incorporate more native plants into the farm and vineyard setting.
Suzie Savoie of Klamath-Siskiyou Native Seeds will walk tour participants through the paths of the botanical garden, providing detailed information for various species along the way, including:
- Plant identification
- Plant habitat in the wild
- Pollinator ecology
- Plant propagation and establishment methods in the garden
- Plant care and at-home gardening recommendations
Kristina Lefever from Pollinator Project Rogue Valley, Katelyn Detweiler from Siskiyou Chapter Native Plant Society of Oregon, Nate Wall & Garrett Long from Troon Vineyard, and others will provide additional information, insights and commentary along the way to help further important discussion topics.
Two separate tour times will accommodate up to 25 registered tour participants for each time slot.
Please bring personal items for a warm, sunny June day and an optional picnic lunch to pair with an optional wine tasting after the tour. The Troon Vineyard tasting room opens at 11am.
Troon staff are also available for farm-wide tours to see the rest of the Troon biodynamic farm and vineyard, after the Native Plant Botanical Garden tour. These 1-hour tours will start at 10:15 & 11:45.
