Meeting the Challenge: Gardening for a Greener Future

2024 watercolor by Robin Wilgus for Davidson Horticultural Symposium

Brought to you by the Davidson Garden Club together with Davidson College, this year’s symposium features:

KELLY NORRIS – Where Horticulture Meets Ecology: Site-Specific Plantings in Public and Private Places

NANCY LAWSONA World of Discovery: Gardening for Wildlife Senses

CAROL REESE – Native Plants: Facts Fabrications and Foibles

TONY AVENTGarden Zillow: Creating and Finding Comfortable Homes/Habitats for Your Garden Flora

How do we meet the challenge of a changing climate? How do we build a sustainable environment in our gardens that nurtures our plants, small animal life, and our souls? In this new world, what does it mean to match the right plant to the right location?

Please join us as we explore these issues posed by a changing world at our next symposium.
