Gain new insights into garden design with Permaculture designer Chris Anderson. He'll discuss factors that go into plant choices, and creative solutions for neighborhood nooks and community crannies.
Small space garden design is a combination of observation and inspiration. We’ll gain new insights on both with the help of Permaculture designer Chris Anderson. We’ll discuss water flow, slope, shade and sun, time and energy constraints, and how all of these relate to plant choices and stewardship of neighborhood nooks and community crannies. We’ll discuss great plants and creative solutions for community intersections like alleys. Please measure any space you want to steward, and bring a picture or two!
This program is in partnership with Green Bexley's Love Your Alley program, and generously funded by the Bexley Community Foundation.
