Responsible gardening program set for April 19
Responsible gardening will be discussed by Lynn M. Steiner at 6:30 p.m. April 12 at the Northland Arboretum. The program is presented by the Brainerd Chapter of Wild Ones.
The program is about ways to garden without causing further harm to the environment. There is a heavy emphasis on using less common native plants, especially those that provide food and habitat for native insects and birds. This program is for beginner to intermediate gardeners.
Steiner has been a professional garden writer since 1987, focusing her writing since 2003 on native plants and how to bring them into home landscapes. She is the author of several articles and three books about landscaping with native plants in the Midwest, and is a regular contributor to Northern Gardener magazine. She travels extensively in the Midwest, visiting natural areas, native plant landscapes, and botanical gardens.
Wild Ones promotes environmentally sound landscaping practices to preserve biodiversity through the preservation, restoration and establishment of native plant communities. Contact email@example.com for more information.
