Landscapes for Living: A Forum on Eco-Friendly Gardening and Lawn Care
Saturday, May 13 from 10:30 AM – 3 PM
Wellesley Free Library
An inspiring Saturday event to engage our community in exploring earth-friendly ways to improve and preserve the health and habitat of our town, one backyard at a time. Landscapes for Living: A Forum on Eco-Friendly Gardening and Lawn Care is an all-day sustainability symposium featuring nationally known experts Dr. Doug Tallamy speaking on gardening with native plants, and Chip Osborne of Osborne Organics speaking on natural turf management. Workshops will include a how-to on backyard composting; gardening with ornamental edibles; and landscaping for bees and pollinators. A complimentary light lunch will be provided. Join us for a day that will enlighten and energize your approach to gardening and lawn care.
This event is FREE and open to the public. As space is limited, advance registration is encouraged. All registrants will be entered to win prizes including a signed copy of “The Living Landscape” by Doug Tallamy, a professionally-designed native flower planter for your home, a gift certificate from the New England Wildflower Society and more.
Landscapes for Living is part of the GROW GREEN WELLESLEY campaign and is presented by the Town of Wellesley Natural Resources Commission and jointly sponsored by the Wellesley Free Library, the Wellesley Health Department, the Wellesley Recreation Department, and Sustainable Wellesley.
