Diversify your garden space to make the most of it! Garden Manager Stasia Orkwiszewki will lead a tour of the Iron Griz Garden and discuss the integration of annual vegetables, perennial plants, wildlife plantings, poultry, and bees for ecosystem health and productivity. You’ll leave with new ideas for your own garden and the information to make them a reality.
Stasia has loved digging in the dirt since she was small while helping out on her grandparents’ hobby farm. Since then, she has studied environmental education, traditional ecological knowledge in the Peace Corps, and worked on farms around western Montana. She has managed the University of Montana Campus Dining Gardens for seven years and is excited to share what she’s learned through experimentation and being attentive to a place.
