What are native plants and why should we plant them in our garden? Understanding the local ecological communities, and employing natives in our designs will reap environmental benefits and cost savings such as reduced water and chemical use, increased pollination, and lower maintenance. And including natives in our own gardens and public and commercial spaces adds interest, texture, and diversity.
For our workshop, we will first explore native plant choices and their implementation through a PowerPoint presentation, and then walk in the Wing Haven gardens to discuss specific plants and their uses.
Following the garden stroll, we will enjoy lunch with CeCe for Q&A.
