Leave the leaves! And other nature-wise practices for autumn.

Thursday, September 30, 2021 -
6:30pm to 7:30pm

Let’s rethink the annual autumn ritual of removing leaves, planting lawns, and hauling debris to the local transfer station. In this one-hour talk, ecological landscape designer Kathy Connolly will talk about leaves—what they are, their role in nature, and what they do for us. She’ll offer ways to reduce leaf cleanup, help soil, support wildlife, and still make landscapes ready for winter—and for next year’s planting beds. She’ll also explore the latest equipment for fall clean-ups, the quiet, high-powered electric leaf blowers, trimmers, mowers, clippers.

This talk follows Kathy’s talk on Site Preparation for Landscape Transformation, which will be offered on September 29, the day before. Attend both talks, and you’ll be well prepared for fall, as well as spring 2022.
