Movie & Discussion. Do you live in an HOA? Did you know that you can use native plants in your garden even if you live in an HOA? Join us and learn why gardening with native plants can be beneficial to the health & well-being of people and wildlife.
This event is for anyone who wants an introduction to the world of native plants. NO GARDENING EXPERIENCE REQUIRED!
Residents of HOAs and the public are invited to join us for a free viewing of the inspiring documentary Hometown Habitat. It features renowned entomologist Dr. Douglas Tallamy, whose research sounds the alarm about habitat & species loss. Hear inspiring stories of communities dedicated to creating habitat for wildlife in suburban and urban landscapes. All of us have the power to create & support habitat for wildlife and bring natural beauty to our patch of the earth.
You will also hear from local HOA residents who use native plants in their own gardens, as well as from local landscape designer Susan Abraham who will give a short presentation focusing on landscaping with native plants in HOAs. A Q&A will follow. Resources for how to add native plants to your yard or community will also be available.
