Grow Your Own Meadow, Large or Small
Join landscape designer Kathy Connolly for a two-hour seminar on the establishment, care, and feeding of a meadow. Kathy will define the terms, discuss meadow ecology and the role of native species, look at helpful tools, and explain steps you can take from June to December to start a new meadow or encourage an existing one.
After the seminar from 3 p.m. to 4 p.m., there will be a plant sale featuring native seedlings grown especially for this event by New England Wild Flower Society's Nasami Farm in Whately, MA. Books and other reference materials will also be available for purchase. Cash or checks only; no credit cards. This portion of the event is open to the public.

The kits are designed for different sun and soil conditions and they will fill an area of approximately 10' x 12' or larger.
