Native gardens can be both functional and beautiful, but they don’t have a strict set of rules. Why not use our time to enjoy our gardens rather than tame them? In this talk, Paula Diaz will help transition our brains from keeping “neat, tidy, and clean” gardens to “happy, healthy habitats.”
Cost: free. The webinar will be 45 minutes including questions and answers.
