With Dan Jaffe Wilder, Ecological Horticulturalist, Norcross Wildlife Sanctuary

This workshop will be recorded and made available to all registrants.

Description: Lawns are stupid. The idea that every house in New England should be fronted with a non-native monoculture with the maintenance requirements of a golf course and the ecological value of a strip mine is an outdated idea. Join Dan Jaffe Wilder, author of Native Plants for New England Gardens and Ecological Horticulturalist at Norcross Wildlife Foundation to learn about the various different options available to replace your turf. From well-known plants to brand new introductions, we will discuss various options that fit the needs of various different lawn spaces.

He is the Horticulturalist and Propagator for Norcross Wildlife Sanctuary and the staff photographer.
