Needham Community Farm Program: Landscaping with Native Plants
April 14, 2022 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pmFree
Join the Needham Community Farm’s “Landscaping with Native Plants” Program on April 14th at 7:30pm – this is a virtual event via Zoom.
About the event
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. This workshop is co-sponsored by Temple Beth Shalom Environmental Action Committee and Green Needham.
