Diversify Your Lawn: Transforming your Lawn into a Rich Tapestry of Native Plants with Anna Fialkoff (Thursday Night Nature April 28)
Who says lawns need to be monocultures or only made of grasses? We can do better than the default landscape material that covers most of the suburban landscape. Join Anna Fialkoff and discover how to diversify your lawn, transition it to meadow or convert it to layers of native plants to create a rich, wildlife-friendly tapestry.
As Wild Seed Project’s ecological programs manager, Anna Fialkoff inspires people to return native plants to the Maine landscape and works with partners to demonstrate rewilding in action. She was the senior horticulturist at Native Plant Trust’s Garden in the Woods in Framingham, MA. She designed and installed native plant gardens, managed interns and volunteers and taught the public ways to incorporate native plants into their gardens. With a BA in human ecology from the College of the Atlantic and an MS in ecological design from The Conway School, she brings with her a deep knowledge of native plant ecology, horticulture, conservation and ecological landscape design.
