"Garden as Community" with Dr Kristina Jones
Looking for a way to get a bigger bang from your garden, be it a small or large space? Follow nature's lead by combining plants into guilds: diverse assemblages of plants growing in healthy, self-sufficient communities. Wellesley College Botanic Gardens Director Kristina Jones will explore the functions and interrelationships of organisms in natural plant communities and how they can be applied to our gardens. A primary example will be the Edible Ecosystem Teaching Garden at Wellesley College, where the understory communities are designed to support the needs of focal fuit and nut trees. Following the lecture, if the weather cooperates, join Kristina for a tour of the Edicble Ecosystem Garden and a spot of tea.
Price is $10 for members of Friends of Wellesley College Botanic Gardens, Arnold Arboretum of Harvard University, Boston Junior League Garden Club, and New England Wild Flower Society; $15 for non-members. Pre-registration required.
