There’s no sweeter way to wake in the morning than to a chorus of birdsong surrounding your home. This talk will cover how to attract and support a diversity of bird species to your property through gardening, including intentional design, plant selection, maintenance techniques, and the creation of habitat features.

Sarah Coury co-owns Saturnia Farm in Haywood County, which specializes in holistic production of perennials, natives plants and cut flowers. She helps manage several large gardens in Asheville, and formerly worked as a horticulturalist at TNCA. Sarah's background is in wildlife conservation, and her passion is creating multi-use garden spaces that provide both high habitat value for native plants and animals, and the healing qualities of beauty for people.
