Planting in a Post-Wild World: small group workshop

Fri, March 31, 2017, 9:30 AM to 3:00 PM

In this workshop, you will work with Claudia West, author and ecological sales manager of Northcreek Nurseries, to more fully understand how to apply her concept of ecological landscape design. Rather than considering a garden one plant at a time, Claudia’s approach encourages people to consider the community of plants that suit the site, building a dense planting that mimics a natural ecosystem.

While this approach may not be traditional, Claudia will also introduce you to strategies that blend traditional with ecological plantings to create a landscape that is attractive and appealing to all.
