Gardening Guided by Natural Communities – with Leslie Edwards

October 21, 2023 @ 2:00 PM - 4:30 PM

Groundwaters flow to the surface of Dawson Forest, forming a seep. Various ferns and other lush wetland species make up this habitat’s biotic community.

Gardening Guided by Natural Communities - with Leslie Edwards

10/21/23 2 pm - 3:30 pm

One of the biggest challenges a native plant gardener faces is choosing which plants to grow where. Recognizing and observing native plant communities, from forest to prairie to streamside edge, can inspire and help guide your plant choices, even in urban areas. Learn how to situate yourself on the landscape and to recognize the plant communities most similar to your own garden setting. The talk starts at 2:00 and will end at 3:00, with time for questions.

Bio: Leslie has a PhD in biogeography, and is retired from the Geosciences faculty of Georgia State University. She has served on the boards of many conservation non-profits.

In addition to giving talks and classes on natural communities, she enjoys spending time in her garden, which is certified by GNPS and Georgia Audubon.  Leslie is coauthor of The Natural Communities of Georgia; copies of the book will be available for sale.

Class participants will receive a 15% discount on shrubs purchased in October and November.
