Learn the basics of designing a garden and how to incorporate native plants!

Native plants can be beautiful and are a great way to attract wildlife such as butterflies and birds to your garden.

Identify planting goals and learn techniques to balance form (height/shape/leaf texture, etc.), function (habitat, screening, shade, flowers/fruit, etc.), seasonality, and site conditions (woodland, wetland, meadow, etc.).

Using plants in Broadmoor's Nature Play Area native plants garden (designed by CBA), we will look at design, how to use design to attract wildlife and basic plant ID.

A great chance to bring your garden design questions!

This class will run rain or shine as the garden can be viewed from inside or out.

Pre-registration required.

Online registration available.
