Special Zoom Program
The Unexpected Houseplant
Presented by Tovah Martin
Tovah joined us via zoom from her beautiful hame in Connecticut. With her book of the same title as a starting point this horticulturist, photographer, author and lecturer encouraged us to "dust off our houseplants and update their image." She was gracious enough to stay with us after her presentation to answer all of our questions with her warm and witty style. You can follow her on Facebook at Plantswise by Tovah Martin.
PROGRAM: Bringing Home the Beauty: Native Plants in Our Gardens
Director of The Native Plant Trust since March of 2019, Uli Lorimer joined us at Forest Park. He has advocated tirelessly for the use of native plants in public and private gardens. His staff of 25 and more than 700 volunteers work throughout New England to monitor and protect rare and endangered plants and collect and preserve native seeds to ensure plant diversity. With his Northeast Native Plant Primer as a starting point, he will showed us how we can bring the beauty of native plants into our own gardens.
PROGRAM: Rain Gardens, Why They Are Important and How To Make One That Works.
Rachel Lindsay explained why rain gardens are an effective, nature-based “Green Infrastructure” solution to prevent larger environmental problems caused by run off from our streets, roofs, driveways, and patios. Rachel is Head of Landscape Design at the Regenerative Design Group. If you'd like to learn more, please visit their website.
