Creating Resilient, Regenerative Gardens: Next Steps How do we create long-lasting, healthy gardens that need to deal with ever-changing weather and our lack of time to care for them? There is an overwhelming amount of information on plants, management methods, organic/conventional products, and too much more. In this session, we will look at a bit of theory, but more importantly, we will see how to put theory into practice; those NEXT STEPS. There are many blissful and fleeting moments in a garden and their return year after year depends on understanding nature, flows of energy, and our place in it all. Participates will learn about: 1. what makes a garden resilient 2. how to create a resilient garden 3. how to think about plant selection 4. how to manage a garden using regenerative and sustainable methods and materials 5. how to be a resilient gardener 6. how to work with nature instead of against Attendees receive an electronic chart of native trees, shrubs, perennials, grasses, and vines that includes cultural information, size, edibility, wildlife and functional characteristics, and resources. Most of the plants can be found in Ohio at specialty nurseries and garden centers. Availability varies with from year to year. LOCATION NOTE: This class meets at the beautiful Grange Insurance Audubon Center in Columbus, OH. Students are invited to explore the native plants and wildlife at GIAC when class is over ! This class is offered in collaboration with the Columbus Garden School. INSTRUCTOR: DEB KNAPKE is passionate about gardening, sustainable garden design and the natural world, and enjoys sharing knowledge through her writing, public speaking, and garden consulting in the private and public sectors.
