BlueRidge Wildflower Society: The Nature-Friendly Garden

Event image Time: 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM Location: Roanoke Council of Garden Clubs The Nature Friendly Garden
Many people approach gardening as a constant struggle
against the outside world. They’re perpetually at war with
nature, investing in chemical treatments to fight off mammals,
birds, and insects in an effort to preserve their garden as a
pristine, unspoiled patch of earth.
Naturalist Marlene A. Condon proposes a radically different
method of gardening: What if, instead of battling the natural
world, we invite it into our yards? The result is a nature-friendly
garden which attracts and meets the needs of common crea
-
tures while maintaining a thriving and varied landscape of flow
-
ers and other plants.
Join Marlene (author/photographer of The Nature-friendly
Garden: Creating a Backyard Haven for Plants, Wildlife, and
People) for an eye-opening 45-minute slide presentation on
how wildlife works for you! Some of you may already be familiar with Marlene from
her work as field editor for Birds and Blooms magazine and as a newspaper nature
columnist for The Crozet Gazette, The Roanoke Star, and The Villager. She is also
naturalist program speaker in Shenandoah National Park.
