A native meadow is an ecologically vibrant landscape, providing food and habitat to native pollinators and other wildlife. The deep, undisturbed roots of mature meadow plants capture and store carbon. Meadows rarely need visits from lawnmowers or leaf-blowers, thus reducing air pollution and neighborhood noise.
But meadows are not simply lawns or perennial beds gone wild. Understanding why meadows are different is critical to success. At this intensive seminar, we'll discuss the definition of a meadow, site selection and preparation, the relationship of grasses and flowering species, and useful maintenance protocols. Class enrollment includes extensive plant lists and design resources.
This is a great course for anyone from home gardeners to professional landscapers looking to take a deep dive into the in’s and out’s of meadow-making.
Grow Native Massachusetts will sponsor this all-day intensive meadow seminar at Jennison Hall, Bentley University, in Waltham, MA.
