Before manicured lawns, with their chemicals, mowers and blowers, there were ecological meadows with their butterflies, birds and bees. Come and learn how to meadowscape with Catherine Zimmerman, author of Suburban Meadows, Bringing Meadowscaping to Big and Small Spaces. Catherine will provide both the inspiration and multiple, organic methods to create a meadow on your property. The workshop will cover meadow site preparation, design, planting and maintenance. Walk away with sample designs for dry, mesic (average) and wet locations as well as lists of native plants to create your own, living landscape design. There will be a tour Aquetong Meadow as well as the opportunity to purchase plants to get started on yourmeadowscape.
