Program Description

Event Details

Learn how one residential association transformed their lawn into an unfolding range of stunning multi-seasonally colorful prairie, woodland, and wetland wildflowers, forbs, sedges, grasses and rain gardens.  As a recipient of the 2011 Conservation and Native Landscaping Award from the USEPA and the Chicago Wilderness, WTTW Chicago Tonight described this condominium association as "probably the most extensive native gardens of any residential complex in the Chicagoland area." An inspirational program to touch the hearts and minds of those who wish to create native eco-friendly landscapes around their property to enhance biodiversity, aesthetic beauty and environmental health. Presentation will be based on his book under Dennis Swiftdeer Paige titled Community Eco-gardens: Landscaping with Native Plants published by Mcfarland and Company.
