Rebecca Lindenmeyr is one of the Northeast’s leading designers exploring the intersection between nature and human living spaces. Her presentation will provide hands on, technical direction for creating beautiful yet functional habitat gardens using two sample projects that were designed, installed and maintained by Lindenmeyr’s firm, Linden L.A.N.D. Group. Specifically these projects were planned with regionally adapted native species for continuous bloom, nectar and pollen forage, as well as nesting sites. The location of the sites was selected to improve connectivity, and the structure of the designs was diverse, multi-layered, and densely planted to reduce maintenance and pressure from invasive species. Participants will leave with sample plant lists, quantities and suggested arrangements that can be adapted to their own sites.
