Gardening for Life: Native Plants in Country and City Landscapes

WOKI Presents ....
 

Gardening for Life: Native Plants in Country and City Landscapes.

 

Thank you for your interest in our Gardening for Life presentation.  Elsbeth and I enjoyed the opportunity to share the way we think about gardening, the value and beauty in planting natives and some scenes from around our outdoor spaces. 

Please enjoy the recording of the presentation below.  They are both the same recording, but you can view it from Youtube or Vimeo - your choice!

Below the videos you can find information about garden centers that carry our native plants, additional resources and pdf versions of the presentation.

Interesting article by Dr. Doug Tallamy

A professor of entomology at the University of Delaware, Prof. Tallamy is a source of insight and inspiration. I can recommend his talks that you can find on YouTube, as well as his books.
