Facilitated by Cindy Goulder (Ecological Landscapes / Urban Gardens) and GreenThumb

Garden areas shaded by trees or buildings can be problematic but not impossible to plant, and they often can be beautiful as well as serviceable. We’ll look at plants and planting ideas for different types and degrees of shade, mostly with native plants.

RSVP on Eventbrite.

Please note: We will begin the workshop with a presentation at Bluestockings Bookstore and then walk to the First Street Community Garden at 48 E. 1st St.
