"Making Our Landscape Great Again."
Speakers: Nan & Mark Plunkettwill
The Program will show the transformation, using mainly native plants, of their suburban landscape and the joy that they have gained through this change. Mark has taken some stunning photos of the various kinds of wildlife that regularly visit their 1/2-acre property on the west side of Cincinnati. This journey will be presented through a PowerPoint presentation.
Erica Younger will be providing a floral demonstration.
Speaker Paul Koloszar is a Horticulture gardener at the Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Garden. He has planted a few trees, pruned several shrubs, divided many perennials, and remembers a fair lot of plant names, usually within 30 minutes after he's been asked to identify them. He's been at this since the mid-90's, having earned a degree in it from Purdue. He has several favorite plants, and always gets a kick out of seeing something growing where it belongs. Not from around here, he, his wife, and three children moved to Monroe in 2002. Now that the kids are older, he is eager to get rid of turf in favor of making more garden beds.
