Planting with nature. We’ll take a balanced approach to planting with nature where native and cultivated plants work in harmony to create a landscape that supports pollinators and birds. Students will be introduced to modern garden innovators who are influencing how we approach garden design when planting with nature. Jennifer will pull from her more than 20 years of gardening with nature to instruct how to evaluate, design, and implement a garden designed with nature. We will take an in-depth look at plant selection and garden care. One class will will be spent on-site at an extensive pollinator garden designed by Jennifer. Discover plants that thrive in Cincinnati. Learn the importance of the winter garden: the often-forgotten garden season.
