Winter Class: Gardens Full of Life
January 18 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am
702 Langdon St., Madison, WI 53706
Native plant gardens are diverse, dynamic, and resilient. A native plant garden itself illustrates a local flora, appropriate plant placement, and seasonal change. Garden care demonstrates sustainable practices and broader environmental stewardship. Like the plant communities they represent, these gardens inspire questions and observations. Communicating effectively with a wider community about what we learn is challenging, yet significant.
About the speaker: Susan Carpenter’s professional training is in the fields of biology, plant ecology and science education. Since 2003, she has served as the Wisconsin Native Plant Gardener at the UW Arboretum, maintaining a 4-acre native plant garden in collaboration with garden designer Darrel Morrison and teams of student interns and community volunteers. She is an expert on native plant gardening, sustainable gardening practices and pollinators and, along with her gardening responsibilities, is actively involved in numerous education, university outreach and citizen science activities.
The cost is $15 (Free for Friends of ACG Members and UW Students with ID). Tickets available @ https://www.eventbrite.com/e/gardens-full-of-life-tickets-78892454455
