Don't miss this exciting workshop on Landscaping for Improved Water Quality through the use of native plants and natural techniques, hosted by the Southwest Michigan Planning Commission and Friends of the St. Joe River.
The keynote speaker will be native plan and garden expert Mark O'Brien from the JFNew Native Plant Nursery, one of the largest native plant nurseries in the Midwest. Mark will discuss which native plants are best suited for any lawn and garden, and show how to plan, design and maintain a natural landscape of any size. Workshop attendees will also learn why it is important to use phosphorus free (0-in-the-middle) fertilizer, and how over-fertilizing impacts the water quality of our wetlands, streams, rivers and lakes.
The workshop cost is $10.00 per person and includes materials and light refreshments. Register online at www.swmpc.org and be entered to win a native plant give-away, a value of over $75.00.
