TNN: Putting Your Garden to Bed with Kathy Salisbury; Oct. 8

Thursday, October 8 7:00 pm
Thursday, October 8 8:00 pm


As the days get shorter and the nights get cooler we start thinking about fall garden tasks. As the colorful display of summer ends fall clean-ups begin. But is this what really really should be doing? Does the garden become less valuable as the flowers fade? Leave the leaves is the new mantra of the fall garden. Before you start raking, cutting, trimming and removing consider a more sustainable form of fall garden care keeping ecology and sustainability in mind

Kathleen Salisbury can’t remember a time when plants, horticulture and the outdoors weren’t a part of her life. She is currently the Director of the Ambler Arboretum of Temple University after a 25-year long career that has encompassed almost every aspect of the green industry. Most recently she worked for the Bucks County Penn State Extension Service where she crafted and implemented professional development and certification training for professionals in the horticulture industry. Prior to her time at the Penn State Extension, she was co-owner, educator and consultant for DeVosBury Designs. She was a Horticulture Instructor at the Berks Career and Technology Center; Horticulturist for the Essex County New Jersey Department of Parks, Recreation and Cultural Affairs; and an Adjunct Professor for the Landscape and Horticulture Technologies program at County College of Morris.
