Your Garden is a Home (Habitat)” at the Flower & Garden Expo
Kate Brittenham and Carolyn Summers (Flying Trillium Gardens & Preserve) present “Your Garden is a Home (Habitat).” Traditional gardens and home landscapes have long been seen simply as spaces of beauty and respite—not of their value as habitat. Our home landscapes are important spaces in the larger world—they are opportunities for ecological havens. However, because we have not viewed them in this way, many of our practices in how we manage and plant these landscapes make them ecologically barren and inhospitable. In this lecture, we will discuss why that is and what we can do to create ecologically healthy and vibrant landscapes at home. Together, we will look at and design a single family home using ecological design principles. Presentation is at 12pm Sunday, March 24 at the Expo.
