Learn how you can help them through plant selection, garden design and maintenance protocols, making your garden a welcoming oasis for all species.

About the presenter:

Cheryl M. English, a long-time resident of the metropolitan Detroit area. Having earned a BA in Art History from Michigan State University and an MA in Art History and Archæology from Cornell University, she realized she much preferred making art to dissecting it. Her studio, Black Cat Pottery, combines her passion for pottery & gardening.  As an Advanced Master Gardener (certified through Wayne County Extension), her abiding interest in things natural – and indigenous – is reflected in her unique designs. Cheryl’s work has been featured in The Detroit News Homestyle Section and Handmade Business Magazine..
