Event description

Description

Discover the aesthetic and ecological principles driving the New Perennial movement in naturalistic planting design. Learn about the design practices and methods championed by famed planting designer Piet Oudolf and his peers with an eye to broaden and transform your own approach to planting design, plant selection, installation and maintenance in home-based or community projects.

Note that this talk is a prerequisite for The Wildscaping Workshop on September 8th.

  • Because soil is at the root of Regenerative gardening: start with soil to increase biodiversity and regenerate ecosystem health.
  • Follow up Tony's talk with the The Wildscaping Workshop for a deep dive into the fundamentals of naturalistic planting design as well as hands on experience creating a design for a residential sized landscape. Limited enrollment.
