Presentation: "Native Plants: Right Plant, Right Place" by Ellen Sousa
Author, garden designer, and owner of Turkey Hill Brook Farm

Native plants attract native wildlife, and are naturally beautiful additions to any landscape. Because they are adapted to particular local climates, native species are generally hardy plants that require little, if any, maintenance. Find out which native plants are most suitable for the various conditions in your yard, whether wet, seasonally moist, dry, sandy, windy, shady, or sunny. 

Sousa is a garden coach/designer who has been helping Mass. homeowners create and nurture earth-friendly landscapes since 2007. She teaches natural gardening across New England and is the author of a 2011 book, "The Green Garden: A New England Guide to Planning, Planting & Maintaining the Eco-friendly Habitat Garden." You can learn more about her at

Also: Garden Magazine & Catalog Swap
