CLAUDIA WEST: Creating Stunning Plant Communities that Stand the Test of Time
Plants are the foundation of healthy ecosystems and they bring beauty and joy to our lives. But great native plants alone don’t automatically create lasting ecological benefits in our gardens. It is time for a new approach to planting design that works with natural principles and marries horticulture with ecology. Join us as we explore how native plants fit into the built landscape and learn how plant community-based design strategies can help you meet aesthetic and ecological goals during your next planting project.For more information, click here.
