As habitats disappear, American Gardens are evolving to fill the void. From a creation solely for the enjoyment of their owners, our gardens are becoming a biodiverse refuge for the native plants, pollinators, birds, butterflies and other animals with which we share the planet.
Keynote speaker Neil Diboll will discuss how native landscapes that require few if any chemicals and toxins are the future landscapes of necessity. As “Joint Ventures with Nature” in our cities and suburbs, our very survival will depend upon these landscapes.
Please join us to hear Neil Diboll and other native plant experts on a full range of natural landscaping and native plant topics.
Wild Ones: Native Plants, Natural Landscapes promotes environmentally sound landscaping practices to increase biodiversity through the preservation, restoration and establishment of native plant communities.
