Rabbits eating young plants can be really challenging while gardening in Watertown.  We will be teaching a hands-on workshop where you can learn to make your own plant cages to protect your outdoor plants.  Each participant will take home 2 small cages to use in their home gardens (or donate to public pollinator gardens).

Volunteer instructors will discuss different materials for making these cages and cutting tools.  The most common materials are poultry netting (aka chicken wire) and hardware cloth.  The most common tools are diagonal pliers, tin snips, shears, or electric shears.

We will also discuss other tips for protecting plants, including specific types of plants which rabbits tend to leave alone.
