Planning Your Native Plant Garden

March 26 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

March Program Speaker – Sundaura Alford-Purvis

Tuesday March 26 – 7:30-9 pm

Sundaura Alford-Purvis will discuss why simply swapping native plants for the mostly Asian and European garden plants that are typically found in nurseries can often have unexpected, even discouraging, results. She will describe how to plan plant combinations that avoid most of the common challenges faced by new native plant gardeners.

Presenter Bio

Sundaura has been working in the horticultural industry in Ontario since 1998 and was an avid gardener for over a decade before that. In 2002 she combined an education in architecture with her passion for plants into a career as a landscape designer for residential spaces. Her interest in sustainability eventually led her away from much of the conventional landscaping industry and toward a focus on growing and working with native species; teaching hands-on courses intended to help restore care-based land and plant relationships; and offering design services specifically focused on supporting local ecosystems and sustainable food relationships in urban and suburban environments.
