Landscaper Katie Neal will present a free program on techniques you can use to “lose your lawn” and make room to plant perennial native food with an ecosystems perspective! 

The program will include time for Q&A after the presentation, and will focus on:  

·       Residential scale ecological landscape design

·       The crossover of residential design with native plant agriculture, drawing inspiration from plant communities in the area 

·       Ideas for losing the lawn and planting perennial native food in your yard with an ecosystems perspective. 

A landscaper, gardener/farmer, master naturalist, and outdoor educator, Ms. Neal is interested in building relationships to the land and to each other that reach beyond the current dominant paradigms. 

In 2022, together with two friends, Katie started Future Habitats, an ecological landscaping cooperative. Together, they share a passion for removing invasive species and lawn to replace them with habitats that work better for all of us.
