Maplewood Garden Club Presents “Landscaping with Colorful Native Plants”

We have so many native plants to choose from that there is a plant for every place! Join Maplewood Garden Club on Monday, September 13, at 7:30 when Dr. Randi Eckel looks at the fantastic diversity of native plants that can brighten up and enhance our gardens, meadows, and forests. Through proper plant selection you can both beautify and greatly enhance the natural environment, and Randi will show us how to use native plants in landscape design to elevate our gardens to a higher purpose. Her presentation will follow a brief business meeting and conclude with a live Q&A session.

Randi Eckel has been working with native plants for more than 35 years and founded the mail-order native plant nursery Toadshade Wildflower Farm ( in 1996 to further public awareness and availability of native plants. A life-long naturalist, lover of nature, entomologist, and confirmed plant and ecology nerd, Randi specializes in the interactions between plants and other living things. She is known for her lively and engaging lectures and workshops on growing and propagating native plants, and offers interesting, nuanced information on the complex issues facing native plants and native plant communities.

Thanks for the information, publicrelations.  I'm all for effort saving, but when I see the initials MGC it creates for me a connection to the Maplewood Glee Club.  You should go to one of their concerts.
