I hope you’ll join me at Unity Nursery in Church Hill, Maryland this Saturday, June 15, 2013 for Adkins Arboretum Day. There are speakers scheduled throughout the day, plus plenty of opportunity to tour the nursery, which specializes in ecologically sensitive and functional outdoor spaces. If you haven’t been there yet, they have great garden ornaments and a wide selection of native plants.
Meadow runoff. Spend the day learning about ways to make your garden and landscape more Bay friendly by reducing runoff, attracting wildlife, and much more!
I am scheduled to give a talk at 2:00 p.m. titled titled “Sustainable Gardens and Landscapes: One Step at a Time” that is based on my upcoming book Chesapeake Gardening & Landscaping. During the day, I hope I can meet some readers of Eastern Shore Gardener! (If we haven’t met yet, look for the person accompanied by a small black-and-white dog. I will be coming straight from a puppy class I teach on Saturday mornings, and Bing, my demo dog, is happy to announce that he will be with me for the day.)
Other speakers include Robyn Affron, Master Naturalist from Adkins Arboretum, “Wildlife Gardening” at 11:30 a.m.; Nancy Robson, garden writer and author, “Garden Stormwater Management” at 12:30; Neenah Newell, Landscape Designer at Unity Church Hill Nursery, “Wall Pocket Gardening” at 1:15 p.m.; and Michael Jensen, President, Unity Church Hill Nursery and Unity Landscape Design/Build, “Shoreline and Erosion Control on Waterfront Properties” at 3:00 p.m.
