Co-sponsored by Green Needham, the Needham Community Farm, and the Temple Beth Shalom Environmental Action Committee.

Workshop:  Native Plants for Landscaping

Date/Time:  Thursday, April 14, 2022, 7:30 pm CLICK TO REGISTER

What is a “native plant” and why should you add them to your landscape?  Native plants support bugs, birds, butterflies and other wildlife, and don’t need watering (once established), fertilizer, or pesticides. Not sure how or where to start?  Needham resident Joanne Neale, the owner of Garden MentorSM landscape design and consulting, will talk to us about the benefits of native plants, how to prepare a bed, and show us slides of suggested natives.  Joanne’s gardening philosophy is based on low maintenance, sustainability, and organic methods, with an emphasis on native plants.  She has published articles on gardening, teaches at Needham Community Education, and is a member of Green Needham and many other environmental and horticultural organizations.

Native Plant Sale

Ready to get started with natives?  The co-sponsors have worked with the Native Plant Trust and Joanne Neale to offer three native plant collections for sale – one for sun, one for shade, and one for mixed sun/shade.  In the workshop, Joanne will specifically discuss each of these plants and best practices for successful planting and care.

Plant collections must be pre-ordered, and will be available for pick-up in Needham on May 21st.
