Kim Bailey: Monarchs, Milkweeds & More!

May 25 @ 2:30 pm - 3:30 pm


Take an in-depth look at the natural history, migration, and habitat needs of monarch butterflies. If there was ever a time to help support monarchs by growing milkweed and a succession of nectar plants throughout the season, it is NOW! The 2024 overwintering population of monarchs in Mexico was the second-lowest ever recorded. What you grow in your own garden makes a crucial difference for monarchs and other pollinators.

Kim Bailey Bio:
An avid wildlife habitat gardener and environmental educator for over 25 years, Kim Bailey has a true passion for pollinators. She first visited the monarch overwintering sanctuaries in Mexico in 2002 and has since co-led numerous trips to the monarch biosphere region. In 2014, she moved to family land in Fruitland, NC and founded Milkweed Meadows Farm. Generations ago, the property was a working dairy farm. Today, instead of producing milk, the farm grows milkweed as well as native wildflower seeds, open-pollinated heirloom vegetable seeds, pollinator-friendly potted plants, cut flowers, and specialty native fruits such as pawpaws and passionfruits.
