The Design Network & The Association of Professional Landscape Designers- Ohio Chapter
Proudly Present “Jump Start Spring!” 3 Lectures on Saturday April 2, 2016
Bill Hendricks, President of Klyn Nurseries, Perry, OH will be presenting the morning sessions. The first lecture, “Notable Natives – Top Choices for Award Winning Landscapes” There is an enhanced awareness today of the importance of native plants not only for natural areas, but for use in virtually every landscape situation. Public awareness is at an all-time high for the importance of pollinators and the interaction of wildlife. Environmentally it makes sense to incorporate natives in design and makes for economic sense as well.
With the growing need for information and sources of native plants, Bill’s presentation will leave you wanting more….native plants that is!!!! The appeal of native plants, which preserve biodiversity while being more sustainable in our landscapes, provide us with many benefits. They are typically longer lived and frequently have lower maintenance requirements. Natives can be used to filter storm water or provide food for wildlife including pollinators and migrating birds. Who best to learn from than one of the largest growers in the state of Ohio, Mr. Hendricks?
After a short break, Bill Hendricks will continue to delight us with his second lecture, “Color Your Garden with Foliage”, bringing the diversity of colored foliage to the perennial and woody garden. While blooming plants are desired, foliage plants can add the extra wow to the garden by providing interest far past the blooms.
Our second speaker is Kathleen Gips (you may know her from The Village Herb Shop) who will lecture on “Herbs for Flavor, Fragrance & Fitness”. Kathleen has decades of knowledge on growing and using herbs for health and wellness. Class will learn tips on growing and using herbs including culinary, aromatherapy, home cleaning, teas, skin care & moth chasers. Join this class to learn therapy with aroma and how important our sense of smell is to our healing and overall health. Essential oils contained in herbs can effectively and safely heal and soothe, promote relaxation, stress relief, better sleep. Kathleen will be sharing methods of blending herbs you can use every day to make your mind, body and home well. “Stay well from the Smell!”
