Claudia West, ecological sales manager at North Creek Nurseries in Landenberg, PA, and co-author of Planting in a Post-Wild World (Timber Press, 2015), will give a talk exploring creative ways to bridge the gap between ecologically sound and aesthetically pleasing garden design. Claudia says, “Our planet is rapidly losing its foundation of life—the very plants that sustain us and most other creatures on earth. We know that planting more native plants in our gardens is an important part of the solution. However, many native plant gardens that focus on ecological benefits often suffer for aesthetic challenges and fail to inspire the public. Great planting design is an essential part of the solution. Join us as we dig deeper into inspiring design principles derived from wild plant communities that resonate deeply within us and trigger stunning emotional responses. We will analyze archetypal landscapes and translate their principles into smaller garden spaces to help you create the native plant oasis of your dreams that will blow you away with stunning beauty!”
