Virtual: Be a Part of the Solution – Plant a Landscape That Makes a Difference (presented by Melinda Myers)
Cost: Free
Apr 21 @ 6:30 pm – 7:30 pm

In honor of Earth Day, join the Garden and nationally known garden expert, Melinda Myers, as we focus today and beyond on earth-friendly practices.

Plants and environmentally-friendly landscapes are one way individuals can make a difference in our changing climate. Using a diverse plant palette, planting natives whenever possible and appropriate, and keeping water where it falls – so it can be cleaned and filtered before entering the groundwater – are just a few of the strategies horticulturist, TV/radio host and author Melinda Myers will discuss. The focus will be on a comprehensive approach that can be phased in with strategies to fit various sized landscapes as well as those with time and/or budget restraints.

This talk will take place via Zoom and a recording will be available on Melinda’s website following the presentation.
