Planting Design for Shaded Gardens

Saturday, February 24, 2018

1:00 p.m.4:00 p.m.

Garden areas shaded by trees or buildings can be problematic but not impossible to plant, and they often can be beautiful as well as serviceable. We’ll look at planting ideas for different types and degrees of shade then do a plan for shaded areas of the nearby Lentol Community Garden, mostly with native plants.

Facilitated by Cindy Goulder, GreenThumb community gardener at Poplar Street Community Garden, Ecological Landscapes / Urban Gardens, and GreenThumb
