Native Plant Guilds Worskhop (Sold Out)
June 18, 2022 @ 9:30 am - 12:30 pm
Choosing native plants for your landscape should be fun and creative, not daunting or complicated! When you consider plants in simple groupings, or guilds, it becomes a lot easier to design a landscape with appealing texture, color, and wildlife value throughout the seasons. Native plant guilds draw on inspiration from natural plant communities in habitats like coastal plains, forests, wetlands, or mountain tops. Follow up the introductory webinar (offered in March) with this field study and workshop at Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens. Participants will see first-hand how native plants can be grouped together for various site conditions and applications.
Please note this class requires participants to show proof of having received all eligible Covid-19 vaccinations, as recommended for their age by the CDC, in order to participate. Because of the dynamic nature of this situation, we ask that you agree to abide by potential future changes in CMBG’s Covid-19 policy designed to address evolving public health recommendations.
Anna Fialkoff recently joined the Wild Seed Project in Portland, Maine after leaving her position as Senior Horticulturist at Native Plant Trust’s Garden in the Woods in Framingham, MA, where she designed and installed native plant gardens, managed interns and volunteers, and taught the public ways to incorporate native plants in their own gardens. With a BA in Human Ecology from College of the Atlantic and an MS in Ecological Design from The Conway School, she brings with her a deep knowledge of native plant ecology, horticulture, conservation, and ecological landscape design.
As Wild Seed Project’s new program manager, Anna helps further its educational programming, deepen relationships with partner organizations, and catalyze the movement to rewild Maine.
