About this Event

The New Orleans Botanical Garden and The Native Plant Initiative present a lecture and workshop by Thomas Rainer and Claudia West, co-authors of the critically acclaimed book, Planting in a Post-Wild World.

Learn how to create beautiful, lush, ecologically functional plantings for green infrastructure, public plantings, and residential gardens based on native plant communities.

Hands-on design workshop with Claudia West

After the lecture, join leading plantswoman Claudia West for a hands-on design workshop to learn how to translate ecological principles of wild plant communities into planting design tools that will help you create better planting. Learn why so many rain gardens, meadows, and ecological plantings fail. This interactive workshop will introduce you to the science behind stable and lasting plant combinations. You will learn the skill of creating plant communities in hands-on design exercises. Workshop is limited to 25 participants.

If you sign up for this workshop, the lecture is mandatory and included in the workshop price.
