Liz Thompson will talk about Vermont’s Natural Communities, and how they can inform us about native plants that thrive in Vermont. We will wander Horsford's grounds, thinking about what might have been growing here in Charlotte 300 years ago, and talking about some of the nursery’s available native plants and how they fit into our natural landscape.
This workshop will be held outdoors in Horsford's botanical gardens with some walking. There is an open-air, historic barn with seating in case of rain.
