Gardening with Natives
Applying the Ecological Perspective

Baltimore Woods Nature Center, Marcellus, NY and Habitat Gardening in Central New York, a chapter of Wild Ones: Native Plants, Natural Landscapes (HGCNY), are pleased to bring renowned horticulture expert Carolyn Summers to Central New York. On Saturday, April 2, 2011, Summers will lead two workshops at Baltimore Woods Nature Center, 4007 Bishop Hill Road, Marcellus. In these workshops, Summers emphasizes the importance of indigenous plant gardening and landscape design, and provides guidelines for beginning gardeners as well as experienced designers.

Summers is the author of Designing Gardens with Flora of the American East, released by Rutgers University Press in 2010. Approaching landscape design from an ecological perspective. Summers encourages professional garden designers and backyard enthusiasts alike to intensify their use of indigenous or native plants. Her enthusiasm for native plants is based on the belief that plants growing naturally in the same place in which they evolved form the basis of the food web. This food web sustains wildlife including butterflies and other pollinators. Wildlife cannot survive without their species specific food sources. By extension, humans are also dependent on this food web founded on native plants, as we rely on the activity of insects and other animals to pollinate our own food crops.

Two workshop sessions will be offered and are open to the public.
Session 1: Why Natives? and Principles of Safe Sex in the Garden runs from 8:00am to 10:00am. This workshop covers the following topics:
? The essential roles played by native plants in the food web
? Garden maintenance techniques that nurture wildlife populations
? How you can use plant reproductive strategies to encourage native plants and discourage exotics.

Session 2: Basic Design Concepts and Showy Native Plants, is held from 10:30am to 12:30pm and covers:
? The design versatility of native plants
? Natural habitat design
? Showy native substitutes for popular non-native plants

Cost per individual session: Members of Baltimore Woods or HGCNY: $25; Non-Member $35
Register for both Sessions: Members of Baltimore Woods or HGCNY: $40 ; Non-Member $60
Call Baltimore Woods at (315) 673-1350, or email: info@baltimorewoods.org to register for these popular workshops.

On May 14th, 2011, Baltimore Woods will hold a plant sale at the nature center, with native plant species, and other perennials, herbs, hanging baskets and standing pots available for purchase. Please visit www.baltimorewoods.org to learn more, including the members-only reserved day and time.

Summers has worked with New York City’s Department of Environmental Protection as the agency’s first Director of Natural Resources, and with the Natural Resources Defense Council  She is currently an adjunct professor at Westchester Community College and serves on the Steering Committee of The Native Plant Center at the college,  affiliated with the Ladybird Johnson Wildflower Center, and chairs its annual native plant sale. Summers currently maintains two demonstration gardens. For more information on Summers please visit www.carolynsummers.net.
