Join us for the Spring Garden Affair and learn about the Foodscape Revolution and how to use natives to create your own home garden foodscape.

To Be Covered - The Foodscape Revolution

Thoughtful design and management of landscapes is more important than ever as concerns of climate, water quality, and invasive plants increase. Our featured speaker, Brie Arthur, will discuss how to create a foodscape using native plants mixed with favorite seasonal food crops. The best organic products are featured and easy, earth friendly maintenance strategies are highlighted. Learn about native edible plants and the pollinators they attract that aid in ecological restoration.
