It’s cold. It’s snowy. Join Sandra Thompson, Peggy Buttenbaum, Linda McDaniel and others from the RIWPS Seed Starters Project. They will demonstrate how to pursue your love of growing plants in the winter without a greenhouse! It’s possible with our very amazing and hardy native plants.
You will learn what exactly a native plant is and why you should include them in your home landscape to enhance our environment. RIWPS is all about protecting studying and appreciating our native plants and habitats through our walks, workshops and symposiums.
Winter is a good time to dream and plan for your very special garden. Plus we will be sharing native plant seeds with attendees so you can get started.
The Beechwood Lecture Series is a joint effort of the URI Master Gardeners Program and the RI Wild Plant Society. Master Gardeners receive education credits for attending. The lectures are offered to the public free of charge.
