About Brenda McNeill: This event was inspired by all the efforts of Art of Leisure and Mentor Alliance in participating in creating the seed packs to be shared in the Sonoma Community. Gardens are an important part of a home here in the Sonoma Valley. Brenda McNeill and friends will help you join in with a gift of seeds to create beauty and abundance around you. These high-quality seeds have been specially curated to attract butterflies and hummingbirds. Both the butterflies and these very lovely small birds are treasured contributors to our larger ecosystem. Whether in a personal garden or expansive field, they bring inspiring beauty and joy into our lives.

“Hummingbirds are all around us and feeding them natural food from flowers, to me it was just important,” said McNeill, a local estate agent who also serves on the board of directors for the Sonoma Garden Park, the Seventh Street East park run by the Sonoma Ecology Center and known for its pollinator gardens. “Hummingbirds and butterflies really need help with additional food sources.”
